It's that time again. Round 8 in my Name This Author blog series.
This author was born in the town where country western music rules. On long trips in the car as a little girl she used to make up stories about the people who lived in a certain house she saw or on a farm she passed by to help the time go faster. She had some unusual pets like a monkey and skunk. She attended a year of nursing school before finding her real calling. It's a good thing. She has a fear of shots.

This week's author is Margaret Daley. Margaret has been writing for twenty-five years. She started in the late 1970s because she wanted to see if she could put a whole story down on paper. That book is still in the drawer and will never see the light of day. But she was able to finish a book which was her goal. She decided after that to get some help and joined a writer’s round table where she met once a week with some writers and went over each other’s work. She sold her first book in the early 1980s and has been selling ever since.
Be sure to visit Margaret's web site, and come back next Wednesday for another edition of Name This Author!
