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 fifteen more commercially-published novels, together with two textbooks on creative writing co-written with Cathie Hartigan. She has had short stories published in several anthologies and magazines.
Margaret’s most recent novels have been published by Choc Lit, a very successful and multi-award-winning independent publisher of women’s interest fiction. The Silver Locket, The Golden Chain, The Wedding Diary, Magic Sometimes Happens and Girl in Red Velvet make up a series of stories about the Denham family.
As a journalist on Writing Magazine, Margaret writes a monthly column on all aspects of fiction and she interviews published authors too. She has also been a teacher of creative writing, editor and competition organiser for much of her adult life.
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.
