Margaret Muir

Born in England, Margaret Christine Muir now lives in Tasmania where she is a member of the Tasmanian Sail Training Association. During her travels, she has cruised round the coast of South America, crossed Drake Passage and visited the frozen islands off the Antarctic Peninsula. It is these experiences which inspired her to write her first nautical fiction adventure Floating Gold. Versions of her work appear as either 'by M. C. Muir' or 'by Margaret Muir'.
