About Author: Margaret lives in a quiet country village in the UK and never had any ambition to become a writer. She loved reading but couldn’t imagine anyone having the patience to write all those thousands of words - until an idea for a short story turned into a full scale novel – and her relationship with writing began. Now, over thirty years later, she still encompasses all the pleasure that writing that first novel gave her. She left school at fifteen without any formal qualifications and began working as an office junior, climbing through the ranks to become secretary to the UK Manager of a Danish company. And it was while she was here that she began writing – the first eight of her books were actually written in her spare time at the office. She has a son and daughter and a grandson and step granddaughter, all of whom are very proud of her writing. Margaret herself rarely tells anyone what she does for a living – unless asked, of course, but her husband isn’t shy at boasting about her success.
Where do you get the inspiration for your books from? Along with most authors I get inspiration from newspapers, magazine articles, TV programmes, an overheard conversation. I need only a germ of an idea to start me off before the ‘what if?’ questions begin. It could even be a place that inspires me, and then I have to ask myself what the hero and heroine are doing there and what is the conflict (I use the term loosely) between them.
If you weren’t a writer what would you be?
Who would you most like to give a hug to?
Name a fabulous book you've read.
Tell us a secret nobody knows about you
If you could kiss anyone in the world who would it be?
I’ve thought hard about this one. Apart from my husband (naturally) it would be either Richard Gere (because the eyes have it!) or – no, I can’t think of anyone else.
By the time you’re reading this, however, I’m hoping to have started a new one. I’m planning for my heroine to be coerced into becoming a nanny, looking after an Italian billionaire’s six year old daughter. The child has never lived with her father, only with her mother who has now died, and she hates him.
Margaret has written over 70 books for Mills and Boon over 30 years. How fabulous is that?
Her current release, BEDDED AT HIS CONVENIENCE, is out in the US, Australia and New Zealand now!
