This is my face.

This is my face.

My name is Maggie and I make things. Mostly stories, and essays, but sometimes things like podcasts and blog content, too. 

I write some stories especially for kids. You'll find those under the tab that says FOR KIDS, and anyone can read those. This includes my book, Also An Octopus, which you can and should buy a million copies of immediately. 

But I also write stories that really are not for kids. You can find those under the tab that says FOR ADULTS, which is true, and also good advice. 

From July 2016-August 2017 I have been living in a Toyota 4Runner with my husband, as we drive from San Francisco to Patagonia and back again. We've kept a podcast of these travels called Let's Not Panic.

 

Here's some boring stuff about me, but its all true:

I have a BA in Studio Art from Scripps College, and an MFA in Writing from University of San Francisco. 

I am represented for all my writing for kids by Jennifer Laughran of Andrea Brown Lit. She is mighty, and gives sound life advice.

I think all dogs are good dogs, but my favorite animals are octopuses, elephants and spotted hyenas.
