profilebw (2)Writer. Reader. Storyteller. Tea and Coffee Boozer

Hi, I’m Margaret McGoverne; I’m a writer and published author of stories that blend my passions of science, society, history, people watching and anomalous phenomenon, all seasoned with a smattering of autobiographical flavour. I write 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.
