For over a decade, Mag has been writing western/cowboy poetry and performing at major cowboy festivals, as well as other events, across Western Canada. Her recitations have also been aired on TV and radio.
Mag also enjoys freelance writing and has been published internationally in numerous magazines, anthologies, newspapers and web sites, winning some awards for her articles and for poetry, in all genres.
Mag is also a songwriter and, in addition to the four songs on her CD "Passin' It On", she has written a number of songs for other artists, from Canada and the U.S.
Her third poetry book “Dreams of Fast Horses”, states—“she writes with a humor that sometimes stretches the truth, but she also shows her sensitivity to the human spirit and her love for rural life.”
Mag Mawhinney presently lives in Cobble Hill, Vancouver Island, near her birthplace.
