Margie Mack


My name is Margie Mack and I am the author of "Through The Woods" the first book in a series of 4. I have just completed and published book number 2 called "My Ship Has Sails." My husband of 45 years and my sons have been a huge support in me completing these books. I have been published in "Chicken Soup of The Soul," as well as appeared on "Wordslinger's" radio show and won a contest with "Sunset Script Films." Writing is what I want to do forever and will compete this series of 4 and then work on the other 100+ books I need to write.

Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
My desk is actually a child's desk that belonged to a cousin of mine. It is cherry wood and big enough for me to sit at and work on. I have a laptop and an additional computer screen so I can have more things open to work on at a time. I face a window and look out on a beautiful back yard so nature is there for me to enjoy. All around my desk on the walls are pictures. I purposely have pictures of my family from generations ago so that I can feel their vibes while writing. We are moving soon so I am not sure where my writing space will be, but for now it is just a small walk from my bed to my chair to my writing.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a place called "Colby Point." A small sleepy subdivision of summer homes placed along the Fox River in McHenry, Illinois, 17 miles to the nearest store. My book "Through The Woods" is all about Colby Point. I named my book that title because to get to my grandparents house we would have to travel "over the river and through the woods" just like in the old song. I was an only child being raised by two elderly grandparents and my grandmother was in a wheel chair because of Multiple Sclerosis. I had plenty of time to myself and was encouraged to use my imagination to keep myself busy so that was perfect advice for a budding writer!
