Margiad Evans

Margiad Evans (1909-1958) was born in Uxbridge, London and moved to Ross on Wye in 1920. She was the author of four novels, Country Dance, The Wooden Doctor, Turf or Stone and Creed. Her short stories, a genre which includes some of her finest writing, were collected in the volume The Old and the Young and her verse in Poems from Obscurity and A Candle Ahead.  She also wrote two autobiographical works Autobiography and A Ray of Darkness in which she wrote movingly and with dignity about the onset of epilepsy and her search for God.
