A long time fan of dark fantasy with a touch of romance and horror, Maggie Berkley grew up in a world all her own, one she created as a teenager during her long times of parental lock down due to a rebellious nature. As a youth she created stories and plays for her friends to act out for anyone willing (and at times unwilling) to watch and as time went by drew upon her love of fantasy and horror to write longer stories and fan fiction. Due to the encouragement of friends and family she decided rather than keep her stories for herself she would publish and in doing so created different worlds to feature her vast imagination.
Maggie lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband of many, many years, an extremely tal ... read more

I was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. Writing became my passion at a very early age. Poetry came easy and later I began to write songs and short stories. My family was a huge infuluence because of their many talents in writing, singing, art,and performing. I"ve always been surrounded by creativity. My writing skills improved in college and I decided to reclaim my passion. "Rent My Oh's" is my first publication and it's a humorous drama. Outside of writing, I have a degree in Accounting and I like to buy and sell items online. Currently, I reside in Marietta, Georga where I am working on my second release.

My poems explore love and death.

I was starting to freak out when I turned twenty-three. I had not done any post secondary education because there was nothing I knew for certain I could love being for all my life.
I've kind of always been one of those people who is good at everything and excellent at nothing.
I finally realized that my mind wouldn't rest until I did something about the stories in my head; I would dream about my stories, obsess over them on days off and vacation time. It FELT like I was already doing it full time outside my normal 40 hours. That is when I made the transition.
I really love writing dark epic fiction with an unexpected twist but I am also very into writing non-fiction too.

But late one night, in January of 2010, the stay-at-home mom of three girls under the age of six had just picked up the last doll from the playroom floor and placed it in a bin when her husband startled her by declaring, “We should write a book, together!” Wearied from a day of shuttling the children to and from school, preschool and Daisy Scouts, laundry, cooking and cleaning, Jennifer simply stared blankly at her husband of fifteen years. After all, the idea of writing a book had been an individual dream each of them had possessed for much of their young adult lives. Both ... read more
