Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
Margaret Kell Virany kindles books and hearts, especially with her newly released ebook , Kathleen’s Cariole Ride. The fire is set with scraps of paper found in her deceased mother’s metal keepsake box. The story bursts forth as her parents’ unlikely WWI spark of love spreads across an ocean and a continent. All they have in common is that they have read the same classics and know how heroes and heroines behave. An eternal flame lights up the frozen wastes and waters of Canada’s aboriginal northern territories, binding knight and lady together.
Margaret’s other titles are A Book of Kells and Eating at Church. She is a graduate of the University of Toronto, where she was taught by Northrop Frye. With her husband, Thomas, she lives in Gatineau, Quebec (across the river from Canada’s capital city of Ottawa).

Perfect Summer Read: Love Story that Breathes Life into the Bush

Kathleen's Cariole Ride is the perfect book to upload for your summer vacation. The cover pic is of warbride Kathleen Kell  sitting on a special ancient toboggan (called a nubougidan by Aboriginals in Alaska and a cariole by French Canadian missionaries). Cree children are hitching a ride behind. Here are two sample reviews from Amazon customers and, honestly, I didn't bribe anyone to get them:

1. "It is a beautiful love story, quick read and meaningful pictures that…

Who Cares: Have Fun Selling Your Book from Your Home Base

The biggest challenge an author faces is how to be a seller. By starting close to home, I found it was an unexpected amount of fun.

I wrote my memoir A Book of Kells in 2003 to get my life together in a broad perspective that would interest all people of all time. If I had any talent it was with a pen.


My parents had left behind tantalizing remnants of…

Five Steps to Fighting off a Funk: Coming up Roses

It can happen to depressive persons in this climate in June, when the days get hot and muggy. A police lieutenant told me that's when the suicide rate rises.

The first sign I was sinking into gloom came two weeks after I'd soared through a free promotion for my Kindle book, giving away 4500 copies in three days and reaching the top 100 ranking. Then a new review on my amazon site hit me, claiming the book format was unreadable and deserved only two stars.

My nerves became…

Father's Day Advice Based on a War Vet's Book

Here's a book written by a man who has learned to be open and articulate about his emotions.  He leads us down into mind-numbing machine-gun duty in Afghanistan, then back up his unique, inspired journey to sanity and bliss.

I discovered Bryan Wood 's book, Unspoken Abandonment, as a Memorial Day promo but it has a powerful core of good advice for Fathers' Day or any time celebrating human relationships.…

Hey Margaret, thanks so much for the friend invite. I have a couple of books up now and am working on the third book in the series. The series is called Annihilation. The first book is "Annihilation Utter Destruction" the second is "Annihilation Hope" and I'm still working to get book three done soon. I started writing the series about zombies which I find to be exciting and on the edge of my seat and hope my readers are feeling the same thing with my books. ha ha.

How about you and what are the niches you write in? How long have you been writing?

Best Regards,
