About Me


I’m Meg: freelance writer, O.U arts student, bookworm, wife to Chris and proud mother to two gorgeous kids.

I’ve been writing for fun since I was a kid: ever since I tapped out my first story on our very cutting edge nineties PC (it was about a magic bracelet that caused a tornado and yes, it was awesome). Writing is my way of decompressing and now I can’t imagine not doing it. I write fiction for fun (although I’m too scared to show anyone.)

I started a blog, From a Whisper to a Roar, back in 2012, where I discovered linkies and social media and SEO and all sorts of other stuff. I fell in love with writing again, and realised it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do.

So now I’m an English Literature and Creative Writing student. I’m also a freelance writer. You can find out more about that here.

On this blog you’ll find: a lot of book reviews, a lot of general literature chat, a record of my experience as a mature student, and reflections on life and motherhood.

I blog for the excellent, friendly, funny website and Facebook community The Motherload.

I’m also a blogger for Revealed Projects, a seriously amazing project that works with young people in the South West. You can read my work for them here.


Come and talk to me! Seriously: do. You can find me on my Facebook page, or Twitter, where I sporadically post whenever I feel guilty about it, or you can find nice looking books on my Instagram. You can check out what I’m reading on my Goodreads account.

You can email me at meganbidmead@gmail.com.

And if you’re a blogger or writer looking for a collaborator, or looking to have your work hosted on other blogs (particularly to do with writing, Christianity, feminism, or raising little kids), please email me, I’m keen to link up with other writers. 🙂
