About Margaret Grant

Margaret Grant – Biographical Note

After Drama school in London, where she won the best actress award the year following Helen Mirren, Margaret chose to make drama teaching her career and wrote many customized plays for her comprehensive school pupils.  But rural life beckoned and she and her husband decided to bring up their young family on the island of Anglesey in North Wales.

It was during her years there, living on the beautiful mountain of Mynydd Llwydiarth, that she became fascinated by its Druid past and began the research for her first novel, which she planned to write whenever time would afford.

She returned to teaching in the 1980’s but this time to a primary school, where she enjoyed writing stories for morning assembly and creating dance dramas.  Since her days in teaching she has enjoyed researching the lives of the elderly and has been involved in a variety of voluntary work.  This has included Reiki healing, which has given her rich insights into the work of a healer and empathy with the main character in her first novel, ‘Where Rowans Intertwine’.

Following a move to Sheffield, she concentrated on renovating an old farm worker’s cottage and writing the much-awaited novel.

She won a local writing competition for BBC Radio Sheffield:  ‘My Journey to Faith – How I became a Bahá’í’  – a humble accolade, but encouraging.

The first novel ‘Where Rowans Intertwine’, is complete and is available on Amazon as both an ebook and a paperback;  but the second one is brewing.  Recently retired to Lincolnshire, she now has the freedom to make writing more of a career.

  1. A wonderful read and a fascinating insight into how the old tribes and the Roman Empire may have integrated.

    • Thank you Linda for your kind comments. It is good to know when people have appreciated your writing and of course it all helps to promote that work and the fund raising it does for the Nepalganj orphanage.
