About Me


Bio: A “southpaw” and a “Buckeye,” Margaret is left-handed and from Ohio. As a girl, she could be found reading a book, playing the organ, or drawing and painting landscapes. By the time she was in high school, Margaret had one essay published, studied pipe organ at the university, and had shown her artwork, where the other artists were all adults. When picking a major for college, Margaret had a very difficult time choosing among her passions. Music won, and she received her Bachelors degree in music education from California State University, Fullerton. Later, she earned a Master’s degree from Azusa Pacific University and Doctor of Philosophy in education from Claremont Graduate University.

As an elementary school teacher and a “teacher of teachers” at the university, Margaret has taught over 300 children to read and hundreds of teachers to improve their teaching skills. When speaking at universities, schools, and writer groups, Margaret adds a spark of creativity to any subject. She authored over 40 articles published in print magazines, a book, and ezines. Margaret resides in Southern California.
