Virginia Macgregor was brought up in Germany, France and England by a mother who never stopped telling stories. From the moment she was old enough to hold a pen, Virginia set about writing her own, often late into the night. She was named after two great women, Virginia Wade and Virginia Woolf, in the hope she would be a writer and a tennis star. She never did become a tennis player but her dream of becoming a writer has come true - What Milo Saw, her first novel, was published to rave reviews. The Return of Norah Wells is her second novel.
