Margaret was born and raised in the Czech Republic but considers the time she spent as an international student in the United States as her true formative years. She has been writing since she was eight years old but had to interrupt her work for several years before she learned how to write in English. Apart from creative writing her list of favourite things includes books, movies, studying psychology, meeting people from different cultures, and baking bundt cakes. Her father is one of her best friends in the world and together they share love for ethnic food and Captain Morgan. She considers herself a global citizen.
