Marcia Mitchell was a senior executive at the Corporation for Public

Broadcasting and retired as associate director of the American Film Institute.

   An award-winning writer, she has published five non-fiction books and recently turned

to fiction with the Maggie Sachet mysteries, called the “new must-read series for mystery

fans.” Marcia also authors the What’s Up, Pussycats series.

   Marcia's novel The Spy Who Tried to Stop a War with husband Thomas Mitchell was recently made into a major motion picture starring Kiera Knightly and Matt Smith! It was premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, so watch for trailers soon!

   Like so many others, Marcia fell in love with Amazing Gertie at the first cuddle. When she found out about the Books 4 Kids Program, she felt much the same. Together with Dwain Lovett, Marcia co-authored her first children's book, Rescued! The Amazing Story of Gertie Agouti. It is a beautiful story of acceptance and compassion, and an instant student favorite in the Books 4 Kids Program. 

   Marcia divides her time between her homes in the Black Hills of South Dakota and Southern California.
