About Margot Finke

    Creator of the “Magic” inside her 
      Magic Carpet of 16x

Margot Finke is an Aussie transplant who writes midgrade adventure fiction and rhyming picture books. Due  to growing up Down Under, some of her books  have Aussie themes and include their unique animals. 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, and their three children are now grown and doing very well. They both  enjoy spending time with their  four smart  grandchildren.

Margot began serious writing the day their youngest left for college. This late start drives her writing, and pushes her to work at it every day. Margot says, “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 also runs a Manuscript “Content” Editing Service,
and regularly SKYPES in classrooms with  fun and educational presentations.
