About Margaret Scrowther
“I’ve had quite a chequered past and was told I should write a book. This, I just shrugged off, because I never thought I was good enough to write a novel. Plus, you have to have the courage and confidence to begin any project.
“I attended various creative writing classes and a script writing course at Newcastle University. Being no spring chicken, I decided that time was against me, so I sat down, and somehow wrote a novel. This was a challenge, but, in a way, it helped me lose myself in the characters as I was dealing with my husband, who was suffering with dementia.”
