Mackie Burt has always believed we make our own luck. From a very young age, Mackie nurtured her two loves: reading and acting. Realizing that you control your own destiny, she left "traditional" high school at 16 and moved out to Los Angeles, where she finished her degree in three years, while writing her dream acting role in her first novel, ABOVE, the first in a series of 4 novels about one of life's final transitions.​​​​​​​​​​​

With a desire to give teens something to relate to, Mackie continues to write the ABOVE Series, while auditioning for acting roles and finishing Book 1 of her 2nd novel series, THE GRAY AREA. Currently residing in Los Angeles, Mackie's heart will always be with her family in New Jersey, but New York City will al

I’ve been writing so much, I think I might actually revert to some math.

I’ve been alive for twenty years and a month. I’ve lived a quarter of my life, a fifth if I’m being optimistic. Twenty years is a substantial amount of time. I’ve fallen off of a bike, crashed into failure, tumbled into growing older in the 7, 330 days that I’ve lived. For someone that survives by using words, right now I’m e Read more of this blog post »

Description: When 17 year-old Callie’s life is cut short, she’s given the answer to a question of the unknown. Is death the end? Fated to death, Callie becomes a Guardian in training. Surrounded by other teenagers like her, she’s forced to face the ghost of what she left behind, the person that she now watches, and the boy she that never knew in life. Because for Callie, death is made up of millions of different infinities, and in each one she can leave her mark. Above is a story about the millions of different infinities after life, in a place where life and love exist even more boundless than before.

“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back.”
John Green, An Abundance of Katherines

“When adults say, "Teenagers think they are invincible" with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don't know how right they are. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they get old. They get scared of losing and failing. But that part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska

“Thomas Edison's last words were "It's very beautiful over there". I don't know where there is, but I believe it's somewhere, and I hope it's beautiful.”

“So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska
