A Little About M. C. Elam
Margaret was born in Ypsilanti, Michigan. When she was a little girl, her family was always moving, across the country, across the state, across town. In each setting she found secret friends living in a closet, under a porch, in the hollow of a tree, or beneath the cut bank of a woodland creek. Blessed with a vivid imagination and sense of wonder, she wrote stories about the pretend worlds she created. She was thirteen before her folks managed to take root in one place. By then her favorite recreation was writing stories.
