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).

  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.

          • Um excuse me i don’t know you and yes i have a xbox but i’m not using it because it’s broken.

        • Your first name is sort of the same as my last name. If I had a “Y” at the end of my name then it would be MACKY, and people would pronounce it Ma-kee like the way people mispronounce your name. Weird, huh?

      I don’t have a favorite really, but what happened in Book #2 is what got me deciding that I wanted to write about my adventures. After that, things just kind of happened.

      (But don’t tell anyone or everyone will want the same.)

  10. Thank you so much Steve Cotler, or should I say Cheesie Mack for bringing your thoughts to pen and paper. I am currently reading the 1st book and it is amazing. Please tell me if you are writing another book in the series.
