Hello All - Spring is SPRINGING!

Thought I would mention my third novel, TRILLIUM, has just come out on Amazon >
I wrote it last year, from February to October.

Set in the Golden Horseshoe region of southern Ontario, and spanning a period of 250 years, TRILLIUM follows the lives of the three distinctly different young men who marry women of their kind and produce offspring ... From the moment a young British foot-soldier, Tom Hartford, crosses the mighty Niagara River in the mid 1750s, to the final scene when two youngsters are set to marry in 2001, readers are taken on an engrossing "Epic Journey!" (Jamie Tennant, CFMU, GET LIT). ... In other words, expect the unexpected ...

My overall aim as a writer is to entertain you - with a thought-provoking and imaginative romp. :)

Who am I? --- M.L. Holton, aka Margaret Lindsay Holton is an award-winning artist from the area who seems to write novels in 15-20 year spurts ... My first came out way back in 1986 with Toronto's Coach House Press. My second, 'The Gilded Beaver by Anonymous' won the Hamilton Arts Council 'Best Fiction' Award in 1999, and now, twenty years on, TRILLIUM, a hybrid historical fiction, has arrived.

Over the years I have slowly developed my writing voice after taking a B.A. in Literature and Philosophy at the University of Toronto, topped off with a Graduate Creative Writing Program via Humber College under 2x Giller Prize winner, M.G. Vassanji. Aside from my 2-D artworks, I have written numerous freelance long-form articles on a wide range of subjects. In 2016, I produced, directed and wrote my first narrative short film, The Frozen Goose, (based on my published short story of the same name) - --- Writing, as a discipline, in different genres, is a substrate of much of what I think and do as an artist who marks 'our times'.

TRILLIUM - Genre: Historical Fiction, Adult, Upmarket. Available as E-Book or 340 pp Trade Paperback.
Available as e-book or paperback via Amazon.CA >
And available in other e-book formats here>
