About My Business:


I am Aussie transplant who writes mid-grade adventure fiction and rhyming picture books. I now live in Oregon with her husband and family. I like to write books that HOOK Kids on Reading, as well as offer fun educational stories that prove helpful. All 13 of my published books can be viewed on MARGOT'S MAGIC CARPET - PLUS links to reviews, book trailers, sample writing + how and where to BUY. Autographed copies from my website. MY BOOKS ARE - * Taconi and Claude - Double Trouble - mid-grade for boys and tomboys A coming of age story about a young aboriginal boy in the Aussie outback. The time is 1950, and Taconi is pulled in different directions by his dad’s problems, a scary man ceremony, the Dreamtime Spirits, and an elusive magic feather. His only mate is a chatty cockatoo with a parade of funny one-liners. A tribal gathering finally offers answers Taconi can accept. ====================== * The Revenge of Thelma Hill - a ghost mystery set in Oregon. Ehen Frannie and her twin move to Oregon she has no thought of ghosts, tracking a killer or a giant arachnid in their basement. Her thoughts are more about making new friends, her missing mom, and the sibling rivalry between her and her brother. * Ruthie and the Hippo’s Fat Behind – rhyming PB about the effect of big changes ======================= Ruthie becomes a brat when her parents move far from home. Her parents tear their hair. Ruthie just scowls and throws tantrums. What is the problem? Then a wonderful surprise changes everything for the better. ======================= * Horatio Humble Beats the Big D – rhyming PB Horatio is a smart boy who can’t read. Words simply jumble together when he tries to read. When he hears the word Dyslexia he panics and refuses to try Special Ed Class. But go he does: and the results are amazing. ======================== * Mama Grizzly Bear - a year in the life of Mama and her cubs. ======================== *Kangaroo Clues - How old Man Roo escapes the wild dogs. ======================== * "Wild and Wonderful," a 7 book rhyming series offers facts about animals from the US and Australia. These e-books are educational and fun: great for classroom projects. Remember, kids today are computer savvy, and ALL my books (both hard copy and eBooks), can be viewed on Margot’ Magic Carpet.. DOWN-UNDER FUN or WILD US CRITTERS: is on my website: - where readers can find extra fun information about the animals in my books. My MANUSCRIPT CRITIQUE SERVICE - This attracts clients from all over the globe, and my website offers a great deal of help for new writers. Publishers today are very picky, so unless your manuscript has a great WOW factor, and is written "As Tight as Granny's New Girdle," you won't receive that acceptance letter you long for. I can help. Nothing gives me a bigger thrill than hearing that a book I helped polish has been published. This is always a huge YEA moment.. *Website - * Manuscript Critiques - * Margot's Magic Carpet - *Taconi Sample Page - * Reviews - Reviews.htm * Wild US Critters: - * Down-under Fun * Teacher's guide -’s Guide.htm
