“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” –Henry David Thoreau, Walden
Margot Appleton is a publishing professional taking some time off to grow kale (and rhubarb), write fiction, and raise her first child. She enjoys reading books of all shapes and sizes, cooking vegetables, and playing in the dirt. Her short and long-form fiction and nonfiction has been published on her hard drive, in dusty file folders in her office, and in a variety of Composition notebooks lying around her house and in her car.
She lives in eastern Massachusetts, a short drive from Walden Pond, in a very small antique house with her phenomenally handsome husband, their daughter Charlotte*, and dog Banjo.
*Charlotte is her middle name.
