Writer. Reader. Storyteller. Tea and Coffee Boozer

Hi, I’m Margaret McGoverne, a writer of stories that blend my passions of science, history, people watching and the natural world, seasoned with a pinch of autobiographical flavour. I’m fascinated with our histories and sense of identity, our roots and backgrounds, and how our memories and childhoods impact our inner and outer worlds.

My debut novella, an alternate historical fiction Sci-Fi, The Battle of Watling Street, was published in 2017 and is available to buy on Amazon. I’m currently writing my first full-length novel, And the Buntings Flew. I’m also writing a contemporary sci-fi novel, The Bondage of The Soil, the sequel to The Battle of Watling Street.

I also enjoy writing short and flash fiction; you can read a selection of my published stories here.

I’m the founder and editor of the flash fiction quarterly ezine Strippedlit500, showcasing new short fiction up to 500 words.

As well as my creative writing, I enjoy blogging about the process of writing and its trials, tribulations, triumphs and any handy finds I stumble across that may be of use to you, fellow writers.
