Welcome ...

WELCOME … to Merlin’s School; a place where anything is possible.

My name is Margaret R Blake. I lived in Tasmania for many years but now live in Queensland, Australia. I have been writing for 20 odd years and I love it. It is one of my many passions.

I have published several books during that time - some traditionally and some through self-publishing avenues. My first book, Merlin's School for Ordinary Children - The Ring of Curses, was nominated for the Ditmar Awards. And during 2014 and 2015 I was on the Premier's Reading Challenge as a feature author. You can view these on my Publishing History page here at Merlin’s School.

You can also view other things while visiting this site. You can read my News articles, hints On Writing, Professional Reviews of my work/books, find out about the secrets of the school in Merlin's Magic and other stuff on my Other stuff page.


All in all I hope to bring you some bits and pieces that you will enjoy reading, along with news of my new releases this year, one of which is the second book in my Merlin’s School series … Sword of Stone.

So wishing you a prosperous 2016 and thank you for visiting my site.
