Bio

You might have guessed that Mackenzie lives a life surrounded by celebrities and witches, and you’d be mostly correct. Except in her world the celebrities are on TV and the witches are imaginary friends. She knows a thing or two about making up a good story, since she is actually the creation of two friends: Candace Havens and Gwen Reyes. Although Mackenzie is Candace’s and Gwen’s escape from reality, she does often have a mind all her own.
