M. G. McCracken


Me? You want to learn about me? Hmm... well, I suppose it all started when my mom and dad got together and said, "Hey, let's have a kid." So then I appeared. Or at least, that's how I remember it.

I grew up in the suburbs of Buffalo, NY. Good times. I ate a lot of Chinese buffet, beef on weck, and pizza and wings. Two things to note: Yes, beef on weck is a real thing. google it if you want to get hungry. Also, no one in, or from, Buffalo calls them "Buffalo Wings". They're just wings; Get it right.

I fancy myself as a writer, and I'm in the process of getting my first first book onto Smashwords and Amazon. W00T!!

During the day, I do something other than write, because unpublished authors still need to eat. I provide technical support for pure play water company. I also offer technical dry-humor, but that's on an as-needed basis.

Now I live in South Jersey with my wife, two kids, and two dogs. I have yet to find good wings in South Jersey, but there is half-way descent pizza. I have found a Chinese buffet I like, but it's a little far from home. When I'm not working or writing, I spend my time wondering why there is such animosity over the supposed existence of Central Jersey.

That's me in a nut shell. Thanks for stopping by.

Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
Up next is the second book/short story of The Goldspinners. I'm a little less than half way through the rough draft, so at my current pace I might have it up and ready in the spring of 2016.
What is your writing process?
My writing process can be described as a Jack Russell barking and jumping at a window. There's a lot of energy and noise expended, but not a lot to show for it at times. In the same token, I'm persistent, so that has to count for something, right?
