Margo L. Dill is the author of Caught Between Two Curses, a YA light paranormal romance novel about the Curse of the Billy Goat on the Chicago Cubs, and Finding My Place: One Girl’s Strength at Vicksburg, a historical fiction, middle-grade novel. She currently has two more books under contract–both are picture books–with High Hill Press and Guardian Angel Publishing. Publication dates of both are to be determined. Besides being a children’s author, she is also a freelance editor with the business, Editor 911: Your Projects Are My Emergency! and she is part of the WOW! Women On Writing e-zine’s staff as an editor, blogger, instructor, and social media manager. She is also an editor for High Hill Press and specializes in memoirs, historical fiction and children’s and YA novels. Margo loves presenting workshops to writing groups and school groups. She loves to ask children the question: Would you eat rats to save your city from falling into the hands of the enemy? What would you do to save your family from a curse?
Margo believes that books are meant to be used with children and teens, and she started a blog about this very subject in August 2008, where she continues to blog on a regular schedule each week. She shares mostly children’s and YA books as well as memoirs or other inspirational women’s literature that encourages and supports women and girls around the world. She blogs at http://margodill.com/blog/.
When she is not writing or editing, Margo loves to spend time with her husband, stepson, daughter, and crazy Boxer dog, Chester. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri; and if she could eat out every day, she would! She is also a member of the St. Louis Zoo, and this is one of her family’s favorite places to go!
