Author has written 6 stories for Commander in Chief, and Newsroom.
The inspiration behind my penname: "Well behaved women seldom make history" (Laurel Thatcher Ulrich).
My name is Mac. Creative writing is relatively new to me. In fact, these stories are my first attempts at it (although I'm not sure how creative I consider my stuff to be given that the characters already exist and I'm just playing with the details). But it sure is fun! In my real world, my family and my faith come first. Then work, friends and fun. I love to read, travel, row, sing, take photos, play tennis and the piano, study US history and politics, lounge at the beach, and watch The Newsroom, Scandal, Top Chef, Duke University Men's Basketball, Atlanta Braves baseball, and American football of any kind. But my favorite shows of all-time are: The West Wing, Commander In Chief, MASH, and The Newsroom.
I also really am looking to become a better writer so any advice, criticism, etc. is welcomed and encouraged. And if anyone ever has any questions as to why I've written what I have, please feel free to ask away.
"Perhaps once in a generation, perhaps not so often, there comes a chance for the people of a country to play their part wisely and fearlessly in some great battle of the age-long warfare for human rights. We do not set greed against greed or hatred against hatred. Our creed is one that bids us to be just to all, to feel sympathy for all, and to strive for an understanding of the needs of all. Our purpose is to smite down wrong."
-Theodore Roosevelt (1912)
