Maggie Hartley is a published author.

Maggie has worked as being a foster carer for decades and in the course of this time has fostered over three hundred children. She has often chosen to take on children that other carers were having a difficult time coping with.

She does her best to help kids that have been labeled as unable to be adopted due to the behavior that they display or what they have been through, which is often extreme levels of trauma. Maggie has cared for refugees, helped to support children as they went through violence and sexual abuse court cases, taken care of teens on remand, and worked with young mothers to teach them how they can parent their babies.

Maggie is the author of over a dozen nonfiction works that revolve around her experiences.

Is It My Fault, Mummy? was published in 2018. It is one of many books from Maggie Hartley. Maggie has worked for years in foster care and that means that having short notice for placements is something that has become routine and even expected.

However, when Paris arrives, it appears that handling the seven year old girl is going to end up being one of the most difficult and heart wrenching cases that she has experienced yet. She comes to Maggie’s house accompanied by the police after she has been found on the streets wandering around alone while crying that her baby brother cannot be woken up.

The police find out eventually where she lives and there they find some bad news. The girl’s mother and her step father are in a heroin daze and when it comes to baby Joel, it’s too late to do anything to save the 5 month old baby. It’s horrible and Paris feels that the horrible incident is her fault.

Maggie continues to be supportive and care for the girl. Soon enough she starts opening up, sharing with Maggie the abuse and the neglect that she went through along with her brother. Maggie finds out that the little girl has been acting as a parent as she reveals that she does know how to make up a bottle and change a diaper. But the more she discovers, the more it becomes apparent that the girl was in the role of singly looking after her very young baby brother.

Both of the parents are now in prison on remand and are being charged with neglect. Meanwhile, Maggie has to try and get through the walls and the guilt that Paris has and try to help her get over the traumatic experience of losing her brother. Will she be successful, or is it already too late? Read this touching book to find out.

Groomed to Be a Bride is another nonfiction book from Maggie Hartley.

She’s about to go through one of the hardest cases that she’s ever faced. Maggie is having a young orphan girl from Iraq named Halima coming to live in her home.

They do not share a language and so it is very difficult to communicate. Thus Maggie has to fight so that she can get through to the refugee girl. She must overcome the barriers and try to fight to reach this girl and get her to a place where she is able to start triumphing over all of the trauma that she has been through.

Maggie finds out that this is the least of her worries in a way when she starts suspecting that the girl is still in touch with her Syrian relatives and they are grooming her so that she can come back and join up with ISIS. The situation is even worse than she thought. Can she get through to this girl while also keeping the relatives at bay so that Halima has a future? Read this book to find out!
