Margaret grew up in Newcastle, NSW with 3 older sisters and a younger brother. Her love for writing was fostered by one of her high school English teachers, who developed her love for writing poetry and short stories. Margaret married in 1987 and widowed in 1991. In 1997 she moved to Cape Town, South Africa where she worked as a missionary with Cape Town City Mission for 2-1/2 years.

Margaret has spent the last 24 years working in various administration roles and has recently taken a redundancy package after working for the past 5-1/2 years as PA to the Executive Director of Samaritan’s Purse Australia and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

Margaret is currently working on a project about being single and living a Christian life.
