Margaret grew up in the mid-west of America, a place that she does not belong but about which she loves to write. She now lives, writes, tells stories and mothers in Cambridge, England. Although she has always been a writer, she spent a handful of years making documentary films, teaching photography and film-making. She made the professional move from non-fictional moving image to fictionalized written story though her manuscript, Return to Paterson about the poet William Carlos Williams. In her most recent manuscript, Jackson’s Road, Margaret revisits some of the themes and settings explored in Abandon.
