Former President of the Methodist Church
Margo was born in County Durham when life still revolved around the coal mines. Instead of growing up in the pit village of Blackhall she was bundled aboard a ship, at three months of age, and sailed across the sea to India with her missionary parents.
She returned to England, with India's colourful culture coursing through her childhood viens, and spent a few years in one rambling Victorian manse after another. Her family life was centered around the Church, just as the communities of Durham once centered around the pits.
Her life as the daughter of the manse opened up a burning quest within her to seek out personal values and beliefs. The search became tough, yet also fun, with each answer leading to a new question. One thing she has learned is that life, with all its secrets and questions, can be an intoxicating adventure...
Margo spent her teenage and young adult years in Southall, on the outskirts of London and is now settled in Worcestershire with her husband and two children.
