Her parents influenced her by creating in Margaret'smind that being an author was not a realistic career. Haddix grew up in a farm house and then graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She worked as a newspaper copy editor in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Growing up in a small town mayhave influenced her writing by influencing the setting in her stories to match that. She says in her biography, "Somehow, for me, hearing so many different stories from so many different people--and witnessing so many different events--didn't just inspire me to write it all down. It also inspired me to play with different plots and characters and settings in my head. "
