Let me introduce myself:  I am Margaret Gill.  I was born in a small mining village in South Yorkshire.  I was able, however, even as a small child, to escape to the countryside to be alone with my love of nature.  I wrote poetry from a very early age and my first novel at fourteen.  But later the pressures of teaching full time meant that writing was put on the back burner.  When I started teaching part time, I began to write seriously and have since written seven children’s novels including a trilogy for young teenagers.

My books seem to be peopled with strong, gutsy heroines who are prepared to go through hell, fire and damnation to reach their goals.  The stories tend to centre around places that have intrigued me;  Costa Rica provides the background for The Return of the Quetzal, Syria is the arena for a dark mystery, and Tibet features strongly in The Eye of the Mandala.  Narwhal is set in the Isles of Scilly.
