Margaret joined the Association's English 4-11 Editorial Board in 1999 after speaking at the Association's Primary Conference in York in March 1988 - Non-fiction: the Cinderella of children's books? She was elected a Fellow of the Association in 2005 and served as a member of the Association's Fellowship Committee until 2016.Margaret was also the co-founder, with Fellow Eve Bearne, of the Association's very successful Children's Literature Interest Group.

An inspiring teacher and author, Margaret's books include Choosing and Using Fiction and Non-Fiction 3-11: A Comprehensive Guide for Teachers and Student Teachers (winner of the 2011 UKLA Academic Book Award), The Primary English Encyclopedia: The heart of the curriculum and Early Years Non-Fiction: A Guide to Helping Young Researchers Use and Enjoy Information Texts.
