About me

I am a retired paediatric nurse, followed by seven years working for Social Services, as a family support worker with Dysfunctional families, I started writing four years ago after my first grandchild was born, by doing an online course writing for children, which really helped me to get started and to choose which genre to write for. Because of working all my life with teenagers, it seemed a natural genre to choose. I like writing short stories and my first ever book is a collection of 9 short gritty stories, based round a youth drama group, and is titled THE ZONE. My aim is to encourage reluctant readers and to help young people come to terms with their often dysfunctional lives.

I volunteer with a youth drama group, First Floor run by West Yorkshire Playhouse, and this has given me continued experience working with teenagers. I am also a very active member of SCWBI, Society of Children’s Writers and Illustrators which is a brilliant organisation to belong too if you are a children’s writer or illustrator or both.
I hope that you enjoy reading my book, and I look forward to reading yours. Morag
