He is the author of the young adult novels His Life Abiding (2013), The Men in the Trees (2014), My Summer (with Robots) (2018) and My Summer (Under a Crescent Moon) (2021).

Marsh's other book-related projects include Dark & Fevered Dreams, a YA supernatural web book and working as a video producer for the Multnomah County Library in Portland, Oregon.

When not pecking away at his laptop with an iced coffee at the ready, Marsh can be found exploring the wilds of the Pacific Northwest or wandering the cluttered aisles of a comic book store. Learn more about Marsh and his work at marshmyers.com.

So glad you like His Life Abiding and are looking forward to The Men in the Trees. Yes, it will be on Amazon and all the usual online book sellers. I always have discussion pages for my novels on my website too, which will provide lots more information (including buying options) as soon as it's available.

Honestly, I've always been interested in chance encounters. In other words, having a brief but meaningful experience with a total stranger that was very impactful on your life but was otherwise inexplicable. These are the kind of incidents which have you wondering if it was a question of fate or coincidence. I always thought that might be a good plot point for a book, because I think we all experience things like that.(less)

“CUSTOMER: Which was the first Harry Potter book?
BOOKSELLER: The Philosopher’s Stone.
CUSTOMER: And the second?
BOOKSELLER: The Chamber of Secrets.
CUSTOMER: I’l take The Chamber of Secrets. I don’t want The Philosopher’s Stone.
BOOKSELLER: Have you already read that one?
CUSTOMER: No, but with series of books I always find they take a while to really get going. I don’t want to waste my time with the useless introductory stuff at the beginning.
BOOKSELLER: The story in Harry Potter actually starts right away. Personally, I do recommend that you start with the first book – and it’s very good.
CUSTOMER: Are you working on commission?
BOOKSELLER: No.
CUSTOMER: Right. How many books are there in total?
BOOKSELLER: Seven.
CUSTOMER: Exactly. I’m not going to waste my money on the first book when there are so many others to buy. I’l take the second one.
BOOKSELLER: . . . If you’re sure.
(One week later, the customer returns)
BOOKSELLER: Hi, did you want to buy a copy of The Prisoner of Azkaban?
CUSTOMER: What’s that?
BOOKSELLER: It’s the book after The Chamber of Secrets.
CUSTOMER: Oh, no, definitely not. I found that book far too confusing. I ask you, how on earth are children supposed to understand it if I can’t? I mean, who the heck is that Voldemort guy anyway? No. I’m not going to bother with the rest.
BOOKSELLER: . . .”

Marsh Myers Few teenagers have as many burdens as Meryl Panagos. Barely out of high school, she’s living on her own and struggling to raise a young son in a small Oregon town. Although she has a good job at a friend’s come book store, it’s still difficult to make ends meet or even find time to talk to the handsome university student who keeps hanging around.

Then Rose Washington answers her ad for a roommate and it’s like a wish come true. A retired school teacher, Rose is happy to help cook, clean and even babysit when needed. But appearances can be deceiving and some people carry mysteries better left unsolved.

Be careful what you wish for.

The Men in the Trees arrives October – just in time for Halloween!

Marsh Myers When you think about a professional novelist, how do you imagine his or her work space? Is it some dimly-lit study with cluttered bookshelves running from floor to ceiling? Is there a large mahogany desk with a dust-covered computer you can barely see behind all the piles of notes, missives and miscellany? That's the stereotype, but work space arrangement is very individualized. Read all about it on my new entry to the Laughing Boy Blog.

Marsh Myers Delighted to report that the Author's Database just listed me as a Top 100 Author. In late December, I was also honored when the cover art for my first novel, His Life Abiding, became a semi-finalist in their cover art contest. You can see my Author's Database profile at http://authorsdb.com/authors-director....


message 5: by Marsh

Marsh Myers A reader of His Life Abiding recently left a nice comment in response to a blog on the Huffington Post Books website. The blog was by Lisa Parkin and entitled "Why We'd Be Screwed If Young Adult Books Were Real." It's an interesting read and I think Ms. Parkin has some valid points. So, I've opened it up for discussion on my website. - See more at: http://www.marshmyers.com/blog.htm#YA...
