Margaret Duarte, a current board member of CWC, Sacramento and former middle school teacher, lives on a family-owned-and-operated dairy farm with a herd of “happy cows,” a constant reminder that the greenest pastures are closest to home. Margaret earned her creative writing certificate through UC Davis Extension and has since published two novels in her “Enter the Between” visionary fiction series: Between Will and Surrender and Between Darkness and Dawn. Her poem and story credits include SPC Tule Review, The California Writers Club Literary Review, finalist in the 2017 SLO Nightwriters Golden Quill Writing Contest, and First Place winner for fiction in the 2016 Northern California Publishers and Authors Book Awards Competition. She is a founding member of the Visionary Fiction Alliance, dedicated to encouraging the evolution and embracement of visionary fiction. The VFA was awarded one of the top fifty blogs and websites for fiction book readers and authors at the content reader, Feedspot.
