According to the bio on her webpage: "Writing has got Margaret Stohl in and out of trouble since she was 15 (back then, mostly just in trouble.) She havs written everything from video games and video game manuals to live action screenplays, as well as poetry in the UK & the US. For 10 years, She designed &/or wrote for lots of video games, one of which was nominated for “Most Innovative Game Design,” but She lost to a rapping onion. If you know games you get why her two bad beagles are named Zelda and Kirby.
She lives in Santa Monica, CA, with her family."
