I am an Aussie who has lived in Oregon with my family for many years. My eldest daughter has promised to publish my books posthumously - if necessary!

Background Information

When I was a teacher's aid, I told Aussie stories to grade schoolers. I had so many of them my teacher friend suggested I write them all down, least I forget some. I have always written. However, when my kids left home, I began serious writing. Members of the online CW list (Children's Writers)supported and encouraged my writing. They were, and still are, a terrific bunch of talented writers, generous with help and information.

Birth Place
Bendigo,  Australia

I now have 11 books published. "Taconi and Claude - Double Trouble," set in the Aussie outback of the 1950s is my latest. It is a mid-grade adventure for boys:

There are three individual picture books all in rhyme:
* Horatio Humble Beats the Big D - dyslexia
* Ruthie and the Hippo's Fat Behind - about BIG change.
* Rattlesnake Jam - just for fun!
PLUS my "Wild and Wonderful" series of rhyming stories about animals from the US and Australia.

My "Musings" column, on writing for children, appears in the "Purple Crayon." Many writers avail themselves of my Manuscript Critique Service, and I have testimonials that state how helpful my personal advice and suggestions were to them. Thanks to the Internet, my clients come from all over the world.

I also enjoy being a writing coach for CWCC and offering a Teleclass once a month.

Additional Information

Check out "Margot's Magic Carpet" to see all my books on one page + links to Reviews, Trailers, or how to WIN a FREE copy of "Taconi and Claude." Just Google my name to find countless interviews, book reviews, and comments about posts on my Facebook, MomBloggers and Twitter pages - also where my books are selling. Google is awesome!
