Margaret M Ford - British Author



Margaret M Ford is a British author of Crime and Mystery novels. Following her retirement as Managing Director of the UK based manufacturing company, Hold-Fast Radiator Valves Ltd, making and selling replacement tops for radiator valves, she relocated permanently to Australia in 2010. In 2012 all her novels to date were published as e-Books on Amazon and all other e-Book stores worldwide.
Margaret produced her latest Crime and Mystery novel, Beneath The Stone, in 2013, and in 2014 was offered a contract to simultaneously publish paperback editions of this novel plus her best selling e-Book, Lament for the Dead, in Australia. Paperback editions were published in 2015 and are available from all good book shops. e-Book editions are also available for download on Amazon and most other online bookstores worldwide. Margaret was both surprised and thrilled when Readers Favourite Book Reviews gave both novels their highest five-star awards, and hopes these reviews will boost sales. Reviews and sample chapters are available to website visitors: simply click the book covers at the bottom of the page to access them.

After completing her sixth novel and a book of short stories, Margaret has since indulged in an experimental change of genre and completed her first children’s story, illustrated by Simon Goodway, entitled The Landonauts and the Rainbow Cloud, which she hopes young readers will find educational as well as entertaining. If it proves successful, she plans to make the ‘Rainbow Cloud’ the first in a series of Landonaut adventures.
