Hello! Welcome to my website




My debut novel DANNY CHUNG DOES NOT DO MATH (UK) will be published June 2021 by Piccadilly Press (Bonnier UK) and will be released in the fall, as DANNY CHUNG SUMS IT UP in the U.S with Abram Kids. 


My name is Maisie and I am a Birmingham-born writer who lives in Glasgow. I write for children, teens and occasionally adults too. 


Things you didn't know about me:

  • My cat ran away after 10 years and went to live down the road.  
  • I can't cook Chinese food, but I can use chopsticks
  • Estoy aprendiendo español (I am learning Spanish)
  • I am a trained yoga teacher for children and adults
  • Before becoming a writer I worked for the Red Cross, was a cleaner, worked in Blockbusters and various libraries.
