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 New England-style farmhouse in Maine.
When she isn’t writing she can mostly be found at the beach, in the garden, or baking something gluten-free.
