As Far as the Stars How to Download ISBN 0008274509 ✓ Virginia Macgregor I was brought up in Germany, France and England by a mother who never stopped telling stories From the moment I was old enough to hold a pen, I set about writing my own, often late into the night or behind my Maths textbook at school My maiden name is Virginia Woods I was named after two great women, Virginia Wade and Virginia Woolf, in the hope I would be a writer and a tennis star My early years were those of a scribbling, rain loving child who prayed for lightning to strike my tennis coach.After studying at Oxford, I started writing regularly whilst working as an English Teacher and Housemistress I now write full time for both adults and young adults My fiction tackles contemporary issues, often through the lens of family life My debut novel, What Milo Saw, came out in 2014 it reflects the humour and tragedy of contemporary Britain through four very different voices 9 year old Milo, 92 year old Lou Milo s Gran , 27 year old Sandy Milo s mum and 24 year old Tripi a Syrian refugee It explores a range of issues from the nursing home crisis in the UK, coping as a single mum, being a refugee to living with a disability Milo has a degenerative eye condition called Retinitis Pigementosa which means he has no periphery vision but, paradoxically, he picks up onof what s going on than those around him, especially in his Gran s nursing home.My second novel, The Return of Norah Wells came out in 2016 it tells the story of a mother who walked out on her young family and came back six years later expecting to pick up where she left off The novel takes place over a May bank holiday and, like Milo, is told through several points of view Willa 7 , Ella 14 , Norah The Mother Who Left , Fay The Mother Who Stayed and Adam the dad It s a real family drama and I hope that it will lead to some interesting discussions amongst my readers about what it means to be a mum today.My third novel, Born To Be Yours , tells the story of seven year old Jonah, a Kenyan boy abandoned at Heathrow airport He is taken in by social services and matched with Rosie and Sam Keep, a British couple who long to have child to call their own As the three of them are brought together they are thrown into a drama which will challenge their notions of what it means to be a family and Rosie and Sam have to confront the hardest question of all how far are they prepared to go for someone who isn t their own child I m working on my fourth novel for adults, Forgetting You , about a man found in Regent s Park with no memory of who he is or where is from This will be out in 2018 In 2017 I published my first Young Adult novel, Wishbones It s been a dream of mine to write for both adults and young adults The story is also contemporary it s about fourteen year old Feather Tucker who lives with her morbidly obese mother who has been given six months to live Feather sees it as her duty to save her mother s life but as she begins to dig into her parents past to find out why her mother got so sick, Feather s life and that of the people in the small village where she and her family live, change forever I live currently live in Concord, New Hampshire, with my husband, Hugh, my two little girls, Tennessee Skye and Somerset Wilder and a wonderful white dogcat he comes on walks with us , Seb I love to write in coffee shops and I walk every day, which is as much part of my creative process as putting words on the page Nothing makes me happier than knowing that readers are enjoying my stories so please get in touch and share your experience of reading my novels.Do also take a look at my website www.virginiamacgregor.com where you can find outabout my life as a writer, upcoming books and events.
