    About "Margo Solod"

      I came to writing fairly late That is, I did not grow up, as many of my friends did, knowing I had to write There was so much to do reading, swimming, horseback riding, riding bikes, reading, freeze tag, staying outside in the summer until the streetlights came on, reading who could choose just one thing Yes, I dabbled in writing at school a few poetry contests as a child, and one brilliant 4th act to Ibsen s Hedda Gabler in college where I turned that classic drama into a mystery I still don t understand why that version didn t catch on and make me a million dollars But after that class I put down the pen and picked up first a crescent wrench theater lighting design , then a hammer building sets, learning construction , and finally a chef s knife I prefer a 6 Henkel with a plastic handle For the knife, that is I never had a brand preference in hammers or wrenches.Sometime in my thirties, I moved to a remote island to run an Inn and restaurant, and during one long lonely winter s off season, I began to write again, returning to my first love, poetry This was back in the ancient era of typewriters and actual snail mail anchored by handwritten letters even slower when sent and delivered on a ferry that only ran once a week In this way I received what little formal writing training I have thick brown envelopes of poems sent back and forth between myself and a few amazing teachers who were willing to try and teach me by mail.Slowly my poetry improved, and I got bold enough to send work out at first, individual poems to small literary magazines and then, as these gained acceptance with some regularity, chapbooks of themed poetry to contests While searching for contests I found Flight Of The Mind, a writing workshop for women that ran every summer for two weeks in a monastery in Oregon This workshop not only got me off my island, but into the company of friends and mentors who remain a part of my life to this day in fact, I befriended the woman who would become my wife there.Soon, I applied to and was accepted at the Vermont Studio Center, where I worked on my own, but surrounded by the creative energy of others I published my first and second chapbooks and won a few minor awards Eventually I came to the realization it was time to close down the Inn where I d served as chef for so long, leave the island and begin working on career four, or maybe five At a certain point you lose track.During several of my previous careers I d moved around a lot, and I d decided that when I settled down I would try the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.And that, dear reader, is where the official bio picks up I traded Vermont for Virginia Center for Creative Arts, an artist s residency that has afforded me much time and space to create I published two chapbooks and a full length book of poetry, and then, seemingly, I was done with that genre I haven t written a poem since 2006 Next I turned my hand to creative non fiction, and published a memoir of place dealing with my island years Now I m working on a trilogy of tween adventure novels, set on an island suspiciously similar to the one I lived on for so long After I finish those, I think I d like to try my hand at a YA novel If I had the temerity to give anyone advice about writing, it would be this READ Read everything, and anything Then turn off the editor in your head she takes up too much space anyway , and let your imagination run wild No telling where you ll end up So many ideas why choose just one

    2. I absolutely adored this book A great win from First Readsis book is great for all ages I myself was raised on a small island off the coast of Maine,and went to college to become a game warden,so this book touched really close to home for me I think it was a great story line,and very true of how island life can be It also encourages people to have some compassion for nature as well I loved it,it was a wonderful book Two thumbs up from me


    3. I bought 3 copies The first copy was for my 12 year old niece Billed as a tween novel, Coyote Summer manages to capture perfectly the tumultuous social and emotional time of entering adolescence navigating new and complex emotions, and asking for independence and responsibility than maybe one is ready for I knew my eldest niece would relate.I bought a second copy for my 5 year old niece when I learned she was reading Little House on the Prairie by herself With its coming of age and humanity in [...]


    4. For so many reasonsIt s a book that sets great store by empathy, careful attention to detail, entertainment outside of a house I suggested this book to every teacher of tweens I know and they have all loved it So fair notice, I also blurbed this book, which I would not have done if I hadn t really enjoyed it Frankly there is very little of this genre that does than observe the frustrations of the age and then offer an adult solution This felt resonant The best compliment that I can give a book [...]


    5. Coyote Summer is a wonderful story about a girl, Jessie in her preteens who learns about who she is despite life s circumstances Jessie not only realizes what her own potential is, but she helps her friends realize theirs too as they struggle to save the coyote family found on a tiny island shared with wary humans This is a must read for all ages My children loved it and related very well to it despite the age difference And it made me long for my childhood, wishing I could go back and make a di [...]


    6. I love this author, and was so excited to see the first of this series come out I bought copies for myself and my 13 year old granddaughter We both loved it Margo s words are so beautifulis is the kind of book you don t want to put down, and don t want to end, but the beauty of this book ending is that there will be a next Anxiously awaiting it s arrival Read this book


    7. Some of Jessie Silva s funniest lines to her mother and her little brother come straight from the author s mouth, as I have heard her charm friends and little kids in the same way Anything Margo writes, you should read Word up, black on white.


    8. I enjoyed this book every step of the way I liked the characters and was interested in what happened to them I loved the island and can t wait for book 2 to learn
