Goodreads Author

in Isle of Man



Member Since
January 2011

Pender Mackie lives in Canada though she spent her childhood years in England.

An imaginative child, Pender wasn't a willing student. Her father — deciding some incentive was needed — promised her a pony as soon as she could read.

Properly motivated, Pender picked up a book and discovered the joys of fiction. Though her infatuation with ponies didn’t last, she still loves a good story.

A technical writer for almost twenty years, Pender spends her daily commute making up characters, romantic plots, and daydreaming.

Pender has several short stories published and two free reads available for download. When she's not doing endless laundry, she's busy coaxing another story into shape.

You Couldn't Make This Stuff Up - Bed Bugs at the Library?

There's been a lot of talk about bed bugs lately. A Health Canada fact sheet says they can be found almost anywhere, including high-end hotels, cruise ships and resorts. Gross, but considering how resourceful these critters seem to be, and how much we travel these days, I guess that's not entirely surprising.

And now bed bugs seem to be turning up in unexpected places; like libraries. Now that is s Read more of this blog post »

“Jude kissed like it was an Olympic event and he was trying for a medal. Tait thought he deserved gold.”
Pender Mackie

“Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast.”
Oscar Wilde

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune
