Margaret was born in Hereford. She started writing fiction when her children were very small, and her first novel A Touch of Earth was published in 1988. Since then she has written 15 more commercially-published novels, together with two textbooks on creative writing. Margaret’s most recent novels have been published by Choc Lit. When she’s not writing, Margaret loves walking, reading anything and everything, gossiping, gardening, going to the cinema and eating chocolate. She quite often manages to eat chocolate and write at the same time, which occasionally makes for a somewhat sticky keyboard, but also makes for happy writing.
