Stuffed in a back corner of the attic is an old box filled with some of the newspaper stories Maggie Rossiter Peterman wrote during the three decades she spent as a newspaper reporter and daily columnist at The Saginaw News in Saginaw, Michigan.
She also has a collection of freelance stories from publications, including the Wisconsin State Journal, The Capital Times, Isthmus, Madison Magazine, the Capital Region Business Journal and Wisconsin Builder.

She and her husband, Jim Peterman, a Madison dentist 50 years, have five children, five grandchildren, two cats and a therapy dog.

It’s a tremendous privilege to have an exciting career filled with meeting engaging people and delivering a slice of their life to readers.
