A Little About Margo Dill . . .
September 16, 2008 in Young Adult Novels
I am currently a freelance writer and editor, speaker, children’s author, and substitute teacher in East Central Illinois. I have a children’s book coming out from White Mane Kids, hopefully in 2009, called Finding My Place. This book is a middle-grade, historical fiction novel set in Vicksburg, MS, during the Siege of Vicksburg. More to come on that as the date gets closer. . .
I also own an editing business, Editor 911, where “Your projects are my emergency.” I edit and proofread any written documents from memoirs to term papers to websites. You can find out more about this business, pricing, and services at www.margodill.com.
I started this blog because I love children’s books, and I read and listen to a lot of them because I am a children’s author. When I taught full time in Missouri public schools, I constantly googled titles of books I wanted to read or order for my students to find out more information or activities to go with the books. There is no point in reinventing the wheel. As a parent, I am constantly looking for things that a boy will want to read. SO, I decided to start this blog to help teachers, parents, and librarians with these same issues I had trouble with as a parent and teacher. I hope you enjoy my blog! If you do, pass the word around. I really hope it can be useful to others.
