Author Bio


Marg Attwood


I have been writing for 30+ years and find it a beautiful self expression, reflection time and a space of calm. My first publication ‘From Chrysalis to Butterfly’ ( self-published) followed my separation and the transformational journey of personal development that enabled me to re-frame the experience. Several years into my second marriage I wrote ‘Enriching the Blended Family’ sharing Peter & my experience with four children, previous partners and the extended blended.
My current book which has been evolving over 8 years is exploring the motivation of 10 people whom I interviewed who have done extra-ordinary things. What values and beliefs drive their passion and what can we learn?
I journal regularly and enjoy capturing the changing moods of life. Having worked on my own I am keen to link up with other writers for support, inspiration and accessing resources.
