Bio: Maggie MacKeever is a pen name for Gail Clark.

Gail Clark was born and raised on a diary farm in southwestern Pennsylvania. A strong desire not to teach secondary school English, led her to southern California, which was as far away as she could reasonably expect to get. Once in Los Angeles, after various employment adventures and misadventures, Clark settled into the film industry, and gradually made her way into post-production sound. After further exertions and reversions, she became a sound editor who specializes in dialogue replacement work, a process that involves going with actors and directors to a sound stage where they try to recreate, or improve, their original performances, with sometimes very entertaining results. Clark's great love, though, has always been writing. She has written television commercials, educational and industrial film narration, screenplays, and historical romances. Her interests include reading, music, weaving, needlework, stained glass, computers, and roses. Clark and her husband Lee live in the Hollywood Hills with their housecats Andy and Mo.
