About Cheesie Mack

Ronald 'Cheesie' Mack


Everyone calls me Cheesie, but my real name is Ronald A. Mack. The A is for Apton, which is a weird middle name. It’s my mother’s maiden name. I think most kids HATE their middle names. I actually don’t. R. Apton Mack is actually kind of cool sounding…but I like Cheesie best.

Here’s some stuff about me:

  1. I have brown hair, brown eyes, and three freckles on my nose. I also have a whitish scar on my thumb where a fishhook stabbed me when I was on a lake with my dad. I was eight and fooling around. Don’t ask.
  2. My birthday is August 16. I’m now 11, which is, IMO, a very cool age to be.
  3. My ears stick out. But you can probably see that in my picture above. It used to bother me, but now that I’ve written about my ears in my book, a zagillion (that’s a gazillion times bigger than a gazillion) people know, so I say…so what? And this is the last time I’m going to mention them on my website!
  4. I have three grandparents (plus one who died a long time ago), two aunts, two uncles, and two first cousins. I also have the meanest older sister in Massachusetts. Cheesie's Family TreeMaybe the United States. Maybe the world! Those tiny boxes and circles to the right are my family tree (which I made as a school assignment in fourth grade). Click on it to see it bigger and learn more about everyone in my family.
  5. I am a very fast runner. One of the fastest in my class, but I haven’t actually raced every kid. I’m on the sixth grade cross country team.
  6. I like sports. Especially baseball and soccer. And I’m a good swimmer.
  7. I read lots of books. Especially adventures.
  8. I love to write about my adventures.
  9. I love words.
  10. And I like making lists…like this one.

  1. dear Cheesie,
    I love your life in your book. I just started your 4th book. I like how you started on Chapter “infinity” for the first chapter. I am really looking forward to reading the whole book on my own. How is your best friend Georgie doing these days? What have you been up to lately? I hope all is well.

    • Thanks, Roseline. Georgie is very, very happy tonight. All his homework is done, and his is sitting in my room drawing pictures of jet planes, rocket ships, and alien monsters. He also just ate the last of my Halloween candy!

  2. You’re books looks a great book iam going to start reading them and i like how you come up a name for yo chacter it is a pretty funny wich stand for mackrone and cheseeie. Most wrighter are have really struglleing with a chacter is name but keepp up the good work _love asho_

  3. Hi!!! Do u like sports I love the Yankees I love all sports !!!!! u are coming to my school on Friday I’m so extinct please respond thanks so much


    • Hi, Matthew. You have a funny mistake in your comment. You wrote “extinct” when I think you meant to write “excited.” I HOPE YOU ARE NOT EXTINCT!

    • That is a very excellent question. It’s square roots. My Granpa showed me how to get the square root of any number WITHOUT using a calculator. It’s kind of like long division, except way more complicated. Some smart guy invented this a long time ago, I think.

    • R U kidding me?! I love ice cream. Last Halloween I went to an ice cream store and got a scoop of black licorice and another scoop of pumpkin. It looked sooo good…black on the bottom and orange on top. Unfortunately, it tasted TERRIBLE…and the licorice turned my tongue black.

    • I don’t have a favorite soccer player, but I really admire Steph Curry and just about all the Golden States Warriors…especially Draymond Green.

    • You’ll probably think I’m a big nerd, but I really don’t watch a lot of youtube. Writing my books, doing homework, being on sports teams, and hanging with friends takes up all my time.
