Bronze: Heartstrings, Margaret High from eLit Electronic Book Awards

Here is what some people are saying about Heartstrings.
Margaret has a wonderful way of putting your thoughts and feelings to rhyme.
She is sensitive and caring with your feelings and it shows in the end results of her poetry.

Her readers express, when they read her poetry it touches their heart, it related to every day situations, her style of poetry is in rhyme and simply said. One reader describes her poetry that it paints a vivid picture of life's ups and downs, simple yet complex, heart warming yet heart wrenching moved to tears and laughter, a real joy to read.
The great masterpieces of Margaret High bring us all so close to our family roots. Her poems are magnetic, they make you want to be back home to enjoy a mugup, trace your footprints, be near childhood landscapes, be alone and listen to the roaring, mysterious sea slapping the face of our rugged coastline.

While reading Margaret's poetry book, I had to wipe away the tears. It did gently tug on my heartstrings and I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for the next one.

About the Author

Margaret Eileen High (née Hutchings) was born in the small community of Bell Island off the east coast of Newfoundland, Canada. She is the daughter of an iron ore miner and a stay-at-home-mom.
At sixteen she moved to Cambridge, Ontario to find work and stayed with her aunt until her parents arrived one year later with her two younger brothers.

Married at nineteen, Margaret had her first child at twenty-one, a beautiful daughter. And four years later she had a son.
Most of her life, she has worked in factories, but all the while she loved to compose verses for family and friends. She had no idea she had a talent for creating personalized poetry until she was in her late forties when her husband, Dan, recognized her gift and encouraged her to pursue it. In 1999 she sent one of her poems to the National Library of Poetry and received the Editor's Choice Award for Outstanding Achievement in Poetry.

She also wanted to share her poetry with senior citizens as a volunteer reader, but she lacked the courage. Not to be defeated, Margaret joined Grand River Toastmasters in July 2007 and gradually gained the confidence she felt she lacked. With the support of fellow members, she has now completed ten speeches and received her Competent Communicator award. As well, she is currently V.P. Public Relations for the club.
Without any formal education to speak of, just basic public schooling, Margaret says: "I have struggled due to my lack of education, but I never gave up. I am still learning every day."
In April 2008, Margaret self-published her first book of poetry titled Heartstrings with the assistance of Petnyaa Self-Publishing Services.
Gardening, camping and her two grandsons are Margaret's passions (besides her poetry) and she spends as much time as possible with the boys. She endeavours to enjoy every single day and her favourite quote is, "Enjoy the journey."
