Mackenzie and her husband have three children, ages 5, 3 and 1. When she is not busy deejaying dance parties, fighting off ferocious dinosaurs or changing diapers, Mackenzie spends her "free" time working as a freelance editor, attempting to keep up with the dishes and laundry, and chasing the ever elusive dream some may know as sleep. She also writes about the hilarity and sometimes missteps of raising young children on her blog, Raising Wild Things (www.raisingwildthings.com).

Besides her family and friends, some of Mackenzie's favorite things include serial commas, cheese, chapstick, Brad Pitt, flip flops, and pretty much anything having to do with vampires. Some of her dislikes include snow, folding fitted sheets, matching socks, running, the phrase, “just sayin,” and toilet paper rolls hanging the wrong way.
