Profile: Margaret Holmes

About This Author

I was born and lived for the first 13 years of my life in Macclesfield, Cheshire. I attended Macclesfield High School for Girls. We then moved to Stockport Cheshire to live on the main route into Manchester. The change from roaming through fields, paddling in brooks or sitting on a hillside reading with only horses for company to being hemmed in by houses, surrounded by roads and heavy traffic was traumatic. I married and have three wonderful children from that marriage of whom I am very proud. My daughter and elder son live near me but my younger son, his wife and daughter live in Australia. I have visited them and enjoyed the various parts of that vast country that I saw. I have worked as an au pair, as laboratory assistant then trained as a teacher and taught for many years. I have worked as a volunteer for Age Concern and in my local library. I married for a second time and we now live on the Sussex coast.
