Welcome to my worlds, both the real one I have to live in most days, and the made-up ones where I prefer to spend most of my time.

If you’re reading here, maybe you’ve already found one of my books. If you did, I hope you liked it.

Or maybe you just stumbled onto this site by chance.

Maybe you typed something in wrong, maybe your computer keyboard went through a wormhole, or maybe there was a glitch in the matrix. In any case, I’m glad you are here.

Please wander about. Check out the books I’ve written, and the works in progress.

Margo Solod has been an innkeeper, restaurant owner, chef, lighting designer, carpenter, and factory worker. She will do most anything to support her writing habit.

Over the last 35 or so years I’ve been a lighting designer, theater electrician, carpenter, cook, factory worker, innkeeper, chef/restauranteur, wild edible forager and I can’t even remember what else. It’s a lot of work supporting a writing habit like mine. Along the way I’ve lived or spent time in all 48 contiguous states. (Sorry, Alaska and Hawaii. You’re next. As soon as I can figure out how to drive to Hawaii.)

I’m settled now in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, a place I refer to as a kinder, gentler version of the East Tennessee mountain area where I grew up. I live with my partner and an ever changing number and variety of shelter dogs.

I was a tomboy as a kid and I never grew out of it. Actually, I guess I never grew up. I try to look at everything as a possible adventure. I’d like to think that shows in my work.

I seem to skip from genre to genre these days. Kind of a genre slut. Maybe it’s that sense of movement and something new around the bend I still crave.

Oh, and I’ve been to Antarctica. That’s probably the coolest thing about me.
