Hello! Welcome to my website

My name is Maisie and I am a Birmingham-born writer who lives in Glasgow. I write for children, teens and occasionally adults too. 


Things you didn't know about me:

  • My cat ran away after 10 years and went to live down the road.  
  • I can't cook Chinese food, but I can use chopsticks
  • Estoy aprendiendo español (I am learning Spanish)
  • I am a trained yoga teacher for children and adults
  • Once I quit a job I'd had for a day and decided I would fly to LA the next day to visit friends.
  • Before becoming a writer I worked for the Red Cross
