Once upon a time I went to school to craft my writing skills, but I wanted a little more from my expensive education than 'just writing classes' so I have an MA from New York University. They liked what I did and even gave me the Herbert Rubin Creative Writing Award when I was an undergrad there. The story that garnered that award, Carmen Jane Doesn’t Work at the A&P was then published in the Gallatin Review.
Since then, I got married, raised two sons, taught private school (have I got stories), founded a non-profit (now closed) and wrote.
This is where I am now, here, writing and selling my work. Thanks for reading.

Wife, mother, author. That pretty much sums it up. :) I am a fantasy author who loves to spend time in made up worlds filled with magic. I am a firm believer that no hero is perfect and that all villains are burdened with a tiny shred of humanity. While I write my Adult and YA novels under the name Mireille Chester, I am now writing a middle grade series under the name M.G. Chester.

La méthode de travail choisie pour l'écriture de ce roman est particulière, car près de 1500 kilomètres nous séparent : qui pourrait penser que « Rémoras » et « La Trappe » ont été intégralement pensés, construits et rédigés à distance, grâce à Internet ?

For me writing equals breathing. They are more synonyms than any other synonym words. I write non-stop since I was fifteen when I was still in high school. Back then, sometimes I just wrote, others I wrote and painted. But writing... oh writing...
As an avid writer, but also avid reader, I loooove books, all shapes and sizes, because they have given me so much throughout my life. All kinds.
Today I do it all.
I remember engraving certain stories in my mind, certain that one day I would write them. Because there are stories that just need to be told.

I’ve been a writer for most of my life, including my early years as an actress when I wrote freelance articles on the side. Like my protagonist, Kate Sachs, I know what it’s like to be a struggling actress, having appeared on stage and in dozens of soap operas and movies as an extra. We’re both pretty good shots with a handgun too.
Unlike Kate, I never landed a starring role on television, so I opted for an MBA instead and started a consulting firm that specialized in commercial writing and training with a theatrical flair for Wall Street. But that gypsy in my soul, as a friend calls my creative muse, was only in hiding. She popped out one day and refused to leave me alone. Deadly Play is the result of ... read more

M.K. Wilke began by writing short stories and grew from there. Her first novel started as a short story, written for a friend, and it sparked an idea in her mind that grew until her characters seemed to come alive. She wrote with confidence whenever she had the time, unable to stop the ideas that flowed in her mind. Before she knew it, a fully finished novel lay in her lap. She could not believe it had only taken her a month to write and edit it, and shortly thereafter she sent it in to be published.
Before she started writing she held some degrees in dance. She is a single mom and lives with her daughter on an acreage a few minutes outside of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

Ryan is a professional woman - which is not to say that she gave up her amateur status, but rather that she is over-educated with a job that reflects her one-time reluctance to leave school and get "real" work – and she spends a lot of time in that profession reading highly technical material. She has many stories rolling around in her head, and she finally decided to write some of them. She prefers literature that isn’t saddled with excruciating symbolism, ponderous dialogue or worldly implications.
