About the Author
Ron Koertge is the author of many prize-winning novels for teens, including STONER & SPAZ, winner of the PEN Literary Award, THE BRIMSTONE JOURNALS, winner of the Kentucky Bluegrass Award, and most recently, SHAKESPEARE BATS CLEANUP. "MARGAUX WITH AN X started as a short story, but the heroine wouldn't let me alone," he says. "A short story wasn't enough for her. Oh, no. She had a story to tell, and she wanted a whole novel to tell it in." Ron Koertge teaches in the MFA in Writing for Children program at Vermont College.
