Margaret Kirby retired in 2012 after a career of working with homeless individuals in Washington DC. Following her retirement, she enrolled in writing classes and invested time in pursuing creative writing.
She is a member of the Rehoboth Beach Writer’s Guild, the Eastern Shore Writers Association and the Writer’s Center in Bethesda, MD.
Margaret is inspired by authors of character-driven novels—Anne Tyler, Elizabeth Berg, Anna Quindlen and others—who take time to explore the inner thoughts and motivations of their protagonists and hopes that her book might appeal to readers who enjoy their work.
She has stories, poems, and memoir pieces published in the following anthologies:
“Rehoboth Beach Reads”: The Beach House (2013) The Boardwalk (2014) Beach Days (2015)
The Divine Feminine: An Anthology of Seaside Scribes (2017)
Visions and Voices of Seaside Scribes (2018)
Eastern Shore Writer’s Anthology (2018)
Margaret is currently working on a recent novel entitled The Music Room.
She divides her time between Silver Spring, Maryland and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
