About

I've been a writer since 1956. I've seen writing and publishing change a lot over the years. I look forward to exploring the ways Wattpad connects people to reading and writing, and may help give them confidence through feedback from readers.

I am also an inventor and entrepreneur. Six years ago, the LongPen -- the first it's-really-your-signature in pen on paper, but remotely -- made its debut. It is now part of the services offered by Syngrafii.com; and is also the basis for a writer/creator/fan/reader service being built at http://www.fanado.com/. 

NEWEST NEWS:  The Happy Zombie Sunrise Home, written with Naomi Alderman. You can find four episodes on her Wattpad page now!   http://www.wattpad.com/story/2426517-the-happy-zombie-sunrise-home

The new picture was taken by Cat Sparks at the Key West Literary Seminar on Speculative Fiction in 2012.

Happy birthday Margaret Atwood! This is interesting, I was reading "Alias Grace" today for my ISU (Independent Study Unit). I also have "The Robber Bride" checked out.
I read The Blind Assassin a few years ago and it really inspired me. I'm a writer and a feminist and you've always been a huge inspiration to me, so thank you :)
Hi, Margaret! I'm a Wattpad newbie. While trying to surf for info about it, I stumbled upon your account. That turned me into a convert. You are amazing.! You are a big inspiration!  I've been an English language and literature teacher most of my adult life. I like it very much that you have a nurturing attitude toward young writers. Yes, Wattpad is like a big lounge where professional and young writers as well as teachers can chat and offer encouragement to one another. Cheers!
