Armed with a background in linguistics and intercultural communication, I used to work on projects to assist with managing the global classroom. Now I'm an author who writes Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction and non-fiction. I also present writing workshops.

Middle Grade Fiction:
*Alligators Overhead Book #1 in The Adventures of Pete and Weasel. Kirkus Reviews says, "McKenzie pens a swampy middle-grade story full of humor, hauntings, quirky characters and a mystery that continues to develop to the very end.. A short, fun story that will excite both young and old imaginations."
