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.

    • You are right. We should be nicer to each other, but something always messes us up. My mother says she has given up trying to get us to be nice to each other. My father says someday (when we’re older) we will look back at all this arguing and laugh and be best friends. I hope he’s right. (I don’t know if Goon feels the same way.) Maybe…someday…

  1. Hi, I love this website! It is so cheesy! 🙂
    I would like to know how(in book 2, Is Cool in a Duel),
    Marci gives clues that she is an only child, earlier in the
    summer. Thank you so much, and have a blessed day! Love, Trinity

  2. HI there, I love all of your books and I can’t wait to read the next one that you write. You are a very talented writer and you have many cool things that happen i your life. You are a very lucky person because you have your grandfather as the camp leader so you might be able to get away with some of the bad things that you do. You sound like your house is awesome when you live with Goon-*roles eyes and laughs*- and with Uncle Bud and all of them, you are a very lucky and nice person (I think), and I hope that you write back soon!

      I have been to lots of schools in Illinois. You should ask your teacher to invite me to yours.

  5. Mr.Chesie Mack I got one of your books at Elk Runs library I got the very very first book you ever made. I think you are nice and all but you are a little mean. Why is that? Have you ever heard jake pauls music if not you should search him up. You should listen to 12 days of Christmas first by jake paul. Love Willow

  7. I have a BFF like Georgie. Her name is Meg and she is my BFNMW(best friend no matter what). Now on to my question. How did you meet Georgie in the first place?

    • I have known Georgie since were were two years old and in diapers. We are neighbors. My mom says she and Georgie’s mother (she’s dead) used to take us on stroller walks together. (I can’t remember that far back.)
