About this author

To give credit where credit is due... I would say it was my husband's idea for me to write a book. I absolutely LOVE to read, and devour books every chance I get. The fact that I create magical fairy houses and make up stories for the inhabitants... well, it seemed like a natural step to take. I've made over 78 fairy houses and writing has now become a passion.

I'm a wife, mom, grandma and chocolate lover. Chocolate covered cherries are my all-time favorite candy, but any chocolate will do in a pinch!
Wine taster fits in here too!
I dream in full color and never ever think inside the box. As a matter of fact I don't think I own one of those box thingies.

We live in northern Minnesota where the seasons are well defined....more

Change is tough. Even more so the older you get… I know. I’m coming up hard and fast on 65 and it’s a strange feeling to know I actually made it this long.

More times than I care to remember, I promised myself that I wouldn’t allow age to take its toll on me. I vowed that I would be financially stable, trim (menopause is lethal), and Lifeenergetic.

I’m here to tell you now that I LIED to myself!

Rick Riordan
“Everyone hates clowns," Otis said. "Even other clowns hate clowns.”
Rick Riordan, The Mark of Athena

Geraldine McCaughrean
“I hate clowns. You can't see what they're thinking.”
Geraldine McCaughrean, Peter Pan in Scarlet

Kelly Link
“There was something about clowns that was worse than zombies. (Or maybe something that was the same. When you see a zombie, you want to laugh at first. When you see a clown, most people get a little nervous. There's the pallor and the cakey mortician-style makeup, the shuffling and the untidy hair. But clowns were probably malicious, and they moved fast on those little bicycles and in those little crammed cars. Zombies weren't much of anything. They didn't carry musical instruments and they didn't care whether or not you laughed at them. You always knew what zombies wanted.)”
Kelly Link, The Living Dead

Sarah Dessen
“Okay," I said, "what's your biggest fear?"
As always, he took a second to think about the answer.
"Clowns," he said.
I just looked at him.
"What?" he said, glancing over at me.
"That is not a real answer," I told him.
"Says who?"
"Says me. I meant a real fear, like of failure, of death, of regret. Like that. Something that keeps you awake nights, questioning your very existence."
He thought for a second. "Clowns.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Tom Blubaugh Hi Marilyn,

Thanks for joining my circle of friends.



Denise Hi Marilyn. I hope you will give my book a try. I have a continuing story set to come out within the next month. "Mckenna" is my debut romance, and covers most all your interests in reading. "Rowan" will be the second. And there will be a third, I am working on it now. Stay in touch, would love to hear from you.McKenna: Beloved of Aodh Celtic God of Fire
