_____________________________________________ A friend is someone who reaches for your hand, but touches your heart. Never look down on anybody, unless you're helping them up.

Margaret Snowdon lives in a small country village in England, with her husband. She has 3 grown-up sons & a daughter, two beautiful grand-daughters and a loveable grandson. Both she and her husband are ardent readers and love to travel. As a creative outlet she enjoys writing novels, short stories and poems.

I love to write about a wide variety of subjects within many forms of poetry, but mainly enjoy writing about nature and wild life. The odd poem and an article of mine has been published in a magazine - Countryside Tales. Also my poem "The Last Leaf of Autumn" was published in Collected Whispers (The International Library of Poetry).

Thank you to everyone for taking the time to read my work. I am looking forward to the enjoyment of reading your gems as well.
You've got to dance like there's nobody watching. Love like you'll never be hurt. Sing like there's nobody listening and live like it's heaven on earth. - William W. Purkey

Margaret Snowdon: I'm still wading through editing ---- Writing is hard, tedious work for few rewards, but it is compulsive. And those few rewards can be great indeed, seeing your novel on a bookstore shelf, and receiving messages from fans; and winning awards. There is sheer pleasure of starting with a blank page and experiencing the excitement of bringing a character to life. Of delving beneath the facts of what happened and when, and filling in all the missing bits of why, how and with whom. That is the joy of writing.
I cannot give up writing, not while I still have another story in my head to share. I have great respect and fondness for all my followers: fans, friends and readers alike. Your encouragement and enthusiasm was all the incentive I needed to make the decision to keep my characters alive and well. And in print.
For that, I thank each and every one of you.

January 30 at 12:00PM
    Linda Engel: I have missed you and your wonderful stories. Work hard and Maybe you can post some shorts for us. Take care.
    January 30 at 3:16PM
    mrsmajor: You're poems were always such a joy to read, and your stories...I hope you will have some time, to pop in once in a while...
    January 30 at 3:44PM
    I am Cat: Shoot for the moon, Margaret! ;)
    All the best to you! Writing is life!
