Margo met Gordon when she heard his reading of "Morag the Wee Mousie"
(You can listen to it here:
Although she lives in Atlanta, Margo was born "a stone''s throw" from where Gordon was born in Edinburgh, Scotland and his accent reminded her of her father''s. They immediately became friends. Margo is a hugely prolific writer and asked Gordon if he''d maybe read a few of her stories so they could produce a cd. Well, since Gordon is a seasoned sound engineer and has his own recording studio (https://www.tradebit.com) it was just a delight for him to add music and sound effects to enhance the wonderful children''s stories which Margo wrote.
Then, Gordon''s twin brother George came into the picture when the goat which Margo had done such a good job of drawing, had to be "tartanised" made into tartan. George is a graphic designer in Edinburgh and he kindly donated his talents to the project.
For some more interesting stuff about Gordon, go to
Margo Fallis was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. When she
was 7 years old, her parents, three brothers and one
sister sailed on an ocean liner to Geelong, Victoria,
Australia. Life was different there and her mother
couldn''t adjust to Christmas in the summertime, so
three years later, at age 10, they moved again, via
ocean liner, to Glendale, California.
After 2 years in the Los Angeles area, a final move
was made to Salt Lake City, Utah.
Margo graduated from East High School in SLC and got
married shortly after that. She had 5 children, four
girls and a son.
Because of her large family, Margo started writing
stories to read to her children when she tucked them
in at night. As time passed, she started selling her
stories to magazines and got a job writing children''s
stories for the Ministry of Tourism of Egypt and also
worked for a similar company in Jordan, helping
promote tourism there.
Margo wrote articles for The SPectrum, the local
newspaper of St. George, Utah and also did
cover/feature stories for St. George Magazine. She
began writing for several Arab magazines and traveled
through the Arab world, interviewing people such as
members of the royal family of Jordan.
Margo also was thrilled to interview such authors as
Clive Cussler, Mary Higgins Clark and Richard Paul
A few years after her divorce, Margo remarried and
moved to Atlanta, Georgia where she currently resides
with her husband, Thom Fallis. Her children and seven
grandchildren still live in the western USA and she
misses them. At this time she writes children''s
stories for Electric Scotland, a huge website and is
happy and proud to have finished this CD with Gordon
Margo keeps herself busy watercolor painting, drawing,
writing, studying algebra, physics, chemistry, biology
and physiology. She studies Islamic architecture and
the Italian Rennaisance artists. This is not all. In
her spare time she is learning to play bridge, plays
the recorder and is learning to read and write
She is currently a member of Stone Mountain
Toastmasters in the Atlanta area and has just achieved
her CTM, in only 6 months and is working on her ATM.
Margo hopes you enjoy the cd as much as she enjoyed
writing the stories for it.
