Hello Dear Reader! Welcome to my website!

My name is Maisie and I am a Birmingham-born author who lives in Glasgow. I am the current Dr Gavin Wallace Fellow (which is a fancy way of saying 'writer-in-residence') at PETER PAN MOAT BRAE in Scotland. It's a magical place and I recommend you visit when we can! 


My debut novel is out this year as:

DANNY CHUNG DOES NOT DO MATH (Piccadilly Press UK) will be published 10th June 2021


DANNY CHUNG SUMS IT UP (Amulet Books, Abrams U.S)

7th September 2021 


I am SO happy that this year you can meet Danny, his nai nai (paternal grandmother) this year!  My novel has an intergenerational tale with a teeny tiny bit of maths, a plethora of comic artistry, and a lot of laughs.
