About the Author

Hello there,
I'm M T McGuire. I grew up half way up a down but now I live in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk with my family and a huge, hairy cat called Chewbacca. (Mwah ha ha haargh. You thought I was going to say 'pussy' didn't you?)
I write humorous fantasy fiction. If I came to stay at your house, I'd be the one who checks the wardrobe in your spare room for a gateway to Narnia. That's probably all you need to know about me really.
If you've read my writing, thank you, I hope you enjoyed it.
If you like my stuff and want to be kept up to date with what I'm doing you are welcome to visit my website and blog at hamgee.co.uk. I tweet sporadically too (mtmcguireauthor).

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

M T McGuire enjoys the real world but wouldn’t want to live there full time. That’s why she writes books. She grew up, or at least got bigger, halfway up a windy down in Sussex. Her home was also the first location choice for Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films, so maybe it’s not so strange that she’s ended up writing spec-fic. Perhaps there’s something in the water up there, apart from chalk.

After a short stint as a stand up comedienne, M T sat down, got married and moved to East Anglia. She now lives in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, with a McOther, a McMini, a McCat and a selection of very silly cars. She hasn’t found a way to make any of the cars fly, and none of them is fitted with ordnance, but she and her team of evil scientists are working on that.

M T would like to be able to tell you she's an NY Times best selling author but that would be lying. Some of her books have won Wishing Shelf Awards though, a bronze and a silver.

Despite being over fifty now and supposedly an adult, M T checks all unfamiliar wardrobes for a gateway to Narnia. She hasn’t found one so far but lives in hope.

If you've read any of her stuff, she'd like to say, 'thank you' and hopes you enjoyed it.

Her blog is at http://www.mtmcguire.co.uk and she's MTMcGuireauthor on twitter.
