I Was There All Along
Margo Krasne, a dyed in the wool New Yorker, has lived many lives– often simultaneously.
Trained as an actress under Sanford Meisner, she left the theater for the ad world, creating the Radio Department at Doyle Dane Bernbach in the 1960’s. Her hands in clay from early days, she went from advertising to sculpting full time until, in her 50’s, she reinvented herself once again becoming a highly successful communication coach. This is her story

Appearances and Other Stories
In this debut collection, Margo wields insightful irony and cathartic black humor to illuminate her themes of loss, yearning and survival, bringing to it a biting female perspective. An adept stylist with an ear for dialogue and an eye for personal foibles, Krasne cleverly captures the distinct voices of her characters as they strive to negotiate the subtle and not-so-subtle minefields of family obligation and personal conflict. She has a knack for getting inside her characters’ heads as they strive to keep up appearances. Readers will most surely recognize themselves, their friends and family members in all of these beautifully rendered stories.
