What Makes Margaret Good at Speculative Fiction?

Margaret was always an avid reader and she read a lot as a teenager in the 50s. What you read as a teenager has the biggest influence when you start writing

She wanted to write something like 1984, but with women, It’s all about the people you are drawn to and the skills you have at the moment.

Growing up in a cabin in the woods, When it rained, she read. There was nothing to do when it was raining, except reading, writing, and drawing

There was a strong focus on family narrative in their household; they told stories of their shared past and extended family. Her first novel was about an ant.
