Margaret Aitken is a Scottish writer for children. As a child, she could often be found outside, hoping to stumble upon the characters of Brambly Hedge and Beatrix Potter.
After studying medicine at the University of Glasgow, she worked as a doctor in the village of Doune, a filming location for Outlander and Game of Thrones.
Along with her husband and three sons, Margaret is currently enjoying life in a red, New England-style farmhouse in Maine. She can mostly be found at the beach, in the garden or baking something gluten free.
She is an active member of SCBWI and the online writing community.
