THE POWER OF STORIES, THE MAGIC OF CREATIVITY

Welcome!

Join me in exploring the power of stories, the magic of creativity, and the joy of writing.

I fling words around as a writer, editor, and teacher of fiction writing classes in the San Francisco Bay Area. I write tales of love, ghosts, and murder -- sometimes all three in one book. I also write about the craft of fiction writing, and I take pleasure in helping other authors achieve their writing goals.

"Margaret Lucke is an exceptional writer." -- Marcia Muller, author of the Sharon McCone mystery series and Grand Master of Mystery Writers of America

Fault Lines

STORIES BY NORTHERN CALIFORNIA CRIME WRITERS


I'm proud to be the editor of FAULT LINES, the first anthology from the Northern California chapter of Sisters in Crime.


Fault lines in the earth can shake our world. Fault lines within people give rise to wrongs that must be righted. SinC NorCal’s anthology invites you on a journey into mystery and intrigue, with 19 exciting short stories about crime and its consequences — an exploration transgressions, guilt, and justice in this earthquake-prone region and beyond.

The book includes my own tale, "Two Hundred Miles," about a young woman dealing with the aftermath of decisions she regrets.

Check out the full details.
