Writers Matthew MacNish and Paul Greci join PROJECT MAYHEM!

TEAM MAYHEM is excited to announce the addition of two more writers! Starting next month, Matthew MacNish and Paul Greci will be adding to the fun, evening out our boy vs girl numbers a bit, as the Team Mayhem boys were sick of getting beat-up by us girls!
Ha, ha!

About Matt:
Matthew MacNish is the father of two beautiful young ladies, three lazy cats and one adorable German Shepard. Together they live in the mountains of north Georgia amidst his endless collection of vinyl records, Lord of the Rings memorabilia, Star Wars figures, and books about swords. You can find him on his blog, Facebook, and Twitter.


About Paul:
Paul grew up in northern Indiana where he spent as much time as he could on the Lake Michigan shoreline. After high school Paul discovered mountains. He worked his way west and north, and after a five year lay-over in California, settled in Alaska, where he’s lived for the past twenty years. When he isn’t teaching English or writing YA and MG fiction or figuring out how to keep the moose out of his vegetable garden, Paul roams the mountains and paddles his kayak on the coastlines, watching bears catch salmon and sea otters cracking mussel shells. His middle grade novel, Stranded, a survival story set in the Alaska wilderness, is a finalist in the 2011 Pacific Northwest Writers Association’s annual contest. blog  twitter facebook

Please everyone, give our new guys a warm welcome! Follow their blogs and stalk them on twitter and facebook! I know they are both going to have great insights on  middle-grade writing and will hopefully be able to get us girls in-line! Okay, yeah...not likely on the getting us girls in-line part, but it sure sounded good!

  10. Yes! Two dudes to add to the dude pool. And couldn't be better choices. Love both their blogs and Paul's photos always get me wishing I led his adventurous life (he's an explorer). Welcome, new fellow Mayhemers!

  12. Out of the twelve comments ahead of mine, I note six written by women and six by men, so obviously the readership around here (at least today) is equally divided. So it's great to have Matt and Paul added to the writing pool to even things out there as well. I'm a regular at Paul's blog and am delighted to follow him over here and meet Matt and the rest of you. :)
