Hi, I’m Margaret McGoverne, and I’d be delighted if you would read some of my writing. You’ve made your way to my often changing, ever growing online home. Welcome!
As well as news about my work, I share content I find along my writing journey that may interest and inspire you, fellow readers and writers. Read a little more about me here.
My writing passions blend my interests in science, society, history, people watching and anomalous phenomenon, as well as a smattering of autobiographical detail in places. I enjoy writing about the tensions between individual and societal change, roots and backgrounds, memory and childhood, and how we face and process the unknown.
My first novella, a historical fiction sci-fi, The Battle of Watling Street, was published in 2017 and is now 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.
I hope you enjoy my site and my work; if you do, please consider visiting my various social media pages on Facebook , Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest – the latter has boards for each of my writing projects, where you can view a flavour of the themes and locations that inspire my writing.
