Margaret O’Brien

Margaret O’Brien was born in Norseman in the WA Goldfields in 1948 and grew up in Bunbury. She started writing after retiring from a 45-year nursing career. Her writing took a dramatic turn when she met Helen (Ing) Nellie at the Perth Writer’s Festival in 2014 and became her ghostwriter and a non-Indigenous collaborator for Simply Ing. Margaret is married, a keen bird photographer and is passionate about animal welfare.
