I'm delighted to welcome fellow Solstice author, Margaret Egrot, to my blog today.Her first YA novel, And Alex still has Acne, was released by Solstice Publishing earlier this year. She has another novel, this time for new adults, in the final editing stage, and is currently working on one for the fully grown up, which she hopes to have finished by this time next year
When not writing novels, or gazing out of the window thinking about writing them, Margaret writes short stories and plays and has won a number of prizes for both. One of her ambitions is to get a full length play onto the professional stage.
Margaret is a trustee – director for two charities. To relax, she plays football with her rescue cairn terrier, or drags him out for longer walks than he feels is strictly necessary – unless it involves a beach. She also swims most days, usually fails to complete the daily Times ‘easy’ cryptic crossword, reads, and goes to the theatre.
It sounds like you lead a busy life, Margaret!

About the book
And Alex Still Has Acne is about three teenagers who, on the face of it, have ordinary, comfortable lives.
Life for fourteen year old Alex is OK most of the time. He enjoys school, has a best friend Sam, and a pretty and only mildly irritating younger sister, Nicky. But then Sam starts acting strangely, and so does Nicky – and both insist on sharing secrets with him and making him promise not to tell anyone. Then Nicky goes missing and only Alex feels he knows where to find her. But is Sam anywhere around to help?
And Alex Still has Acne, and several short stories are available from Amazon:
Look out for the free book promotion on Amazon for July 24th and 25th.
