Rick Reed Hi Marilyn. We keep bumping into each other. Are you going to Killer Nashville this year? If so, please look me up. I'm interested in the event in Las Vegas now that I'm located in California and retired. Take care. Stay in touch.

Rebecca Talley Hi Marilyn,

You probably don't remember me, but I was one of your students in the Writer's Digest Novel Writing course many moons ago. You helped me with the first 50 pages of my novel. That novel, "Heaven Scent," is now published. Thank you for your help and it's good to see you here.


message 2: by Betty

Betty I made a comment to you. Wonder where it went?

Anyway, congrats on publishing 20 books! Wow! I only have three published. I placed as many of yours as I could find in my library. Can't wait to read one or all of them. I hope you might add mine to your shelf.

Time restraints at present.

c u soon,
Betty Dravis




Barbara Watkins So nice to meet you Marilyn! Your books sound so intriguing.
