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. Margaret is represented by the Wylie Agency in New York.
Margaret’s short story, Abandon features in the 2014 Askance anthology Homes and won first prize in the Askance 2013 competition.
