Hello! Welcome to my website

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


Things you didn't know about me:

  • I love dim sum or 'yum cha' 
  • 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
  • I have lived in California, Taiwan and now Scotland (which is by far the coldest place so far but also one of the friendliest places to live)
