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,” and the comedy, "What’s Up, Pussycats."

Like so many others, Marcia fell in love with Amazing Gertie at the first cuddle. Her first children's book, Rescued! The Amazing Story of Gertie Agouti, is co-written with Dwain Lovett.  It is a beautiful story of acceptance and compassion.  An August 24th release is scheduled!

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