Margot Finke


Margot Finke is an Aussie transplant who writes mid-grade adventure fiction and rhyming picture books. For many years she has lived in Oregon with her husband and family.

Gardening, travel, and reading fill in the cracks between writing. Her husband is very supportive, though not interested in children's books . Their three children are now grown and doing very well. Seven grandchildren are the light of her life.

Margot didn't begin serious writing until the day their youngest left for college. This late start drives her writing, and pushes her to work at it every day. Margot said, "I really envy those who began young, and managed to slip into writing mode between kid fights, diaper changes, household disasters, and outside jobs. You are my heroes! "

Margot's 7rhyming picture book series,"Wild and Wonderful," tells fun facts about US and Aussie critters. Now available as ebooks, they will soon be published as soft cover (paper) books.

Her other picture books and young teen adventures can be bought from her website, and are available through Amazon and other stores.( Margot also does Manuscript Critiques. Let her help you write tight and terrific pages.
