MH-PR-photo-web-bordMargaret Hawkins lives and writes on a farm in Wexford. Her first book, Restless Spirit  was based on the true story of Rose Quinn, a woman who died less than a year after being committed to a county asylum for having refused to enter an arranged marriage.  Her debut novel, Deny Me Not  is a tale of land and inheritance in contemporary Ireland.  Published in 2013, it was described by the Irish Examiner as “an intelligent page-turner”. She is health columnist with the Irish Farmers Journal, a freelance writing consultant, and her radio essays have been broadcast on RTE’s Sunday Miscellany.
