‘Ower The Tuppenny’ is a captivating collection of eighteen fictional short stories, based in the rural country setting of the County Antrim villages of Gracehill and Ahoghill. The stories cover a variety of topics and are rooted from the Author’s childhood growing up in the area around Gracehill and Ahoghill.
‘Ower The Tuppenny’ is beautifully written incorporating a selection of every-day Ulster-Scots words and phrases. 
Margaret Cameron is an established writer and published Author, with two non-fiction books – ‘The Women in Green’ and ‘Share – their Story.’ Margaret also enjoys writing fiction and has appeared in Ireland’s Own Anthology of Winning Irish Short Stories in 2015 and in 2016.
