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.

Why did you write MaddAddam, I’m sometimes asked?

Margaret, you have been part of my childhood! I think I read mostly all of your poems. I remember writing a biography of you for an assignment in elementary school and just respecting you, a great role model, so much. 
Recently I bought "Tiger Eyes" from a book sale only because I saw your name on it. And then I find that "Tiger Eyes" was made into a movie, and it is on Netflix (Hells Ya)! I just need to finish my final exams to indulge myself.
Anyways, I saw you on Wattpad by chance and became really excited, so I had to share my thoughts. 
Happy writing and reading! 

P.S. Congrats on being in the 25 Best Books of the Year (as I've seen on Amazon)!
