Margaret Silverwood was born in South Australia, moved
to Dunedin, New Zealand when she was 14, and is now based in Whanganui.

Her enlightened
mother used comics to teach her to read, and she’s loved
comics as a storytelling medium ever since. Her first comic, Getting Drunk, was drawn
as coursework for a creative writing paper, and her second,
Paradise Lost: The Minicomic was drawn at art school.
Margaret has had three children’s picture books published
internationally, exhibits drawings and prints, and has drawn
two more mini-comics: Utopia Now Vol. 1 and Waldoland.
