Sep 14, 2005 — Canadian author Maggie Wheeler says she never intended to write a series of murder mysteries. But with the success of her first book, A Violent End, she's been called a prominent voice in preserving and celebrating the history of eastern Ontario. Specifically a stretch of the St. Lawrence River between Morrisburg and Cornwall, Ontario. It's an area known as Lake St. Lawrence and the Lost Villages. When the Seaway opened in 1958, six communities were lost in the planned flood. Wheeler will discuss her novels A Violent End and its sequel, The Brother of Sleep, Thursday evening at 7 and again Friday at 12:30 at the Potsdam Public Library. Todd Moe spoke with her at the Nightingale B&B in Ingleside, Ontario - the setting of her third novel due out next year. Wheeler says her books are historical fiction set along the 1950's St. Lawrence Seaway and the Power Project.
