Maggie Makepeace Book and Novel

Maggie Makepeace - Author


Maggie Makepeace came to writing late in life, having begun her career as a zoologist. She had a number of jobs in scientific research and Wildlife Trusts, the most rewarding of which was a 3-year contract on a Scottish estuary studying the social behaviour of shelducks.

For a brief time in the 70s she was a television presenter for Yorkshire TV and London Weekend, and gradually became more interested in the psychology of human behaviour, especially communication – or the lack of it – and in the way that some people attempt to control the lives of others.

When in the 80s she moved back to the Westcountry, she began to write in earnest. Her first novel was published by Random House when she was 50, followed by 3 others.
