Marsha Ward was born in the sleepy little town of Phoenix, Arizona, and grew up with chickens, citrus trees, and lots of room to roam. She began telling stories at a very early age, regaling neighborhood chums with her tales over homemade sugar cookies and milk. Her love of 19th Century Western history was reinforced by visits to her cousins on their ranch and listening to her father's stories of homesteading in Old Mexico and in the Tucson area.
Over the years, Marsha became an award-winning poet, writer and editor, with over 900 pieces of published work. She is the founder of American Night Writers Association and a member of Western Writers of America, Women Writing the West, and Rim Country Writers. She makes her home in a tiny forest hamlet in Arizona. When she is not writing, she loves to spoil her grandchildren, travel, give talks, meet readers, and sign books.
on Dec. 27, 2011 :
Marsha Ward writes with such skill the reader is drawn into her stories and becomes one with the narrative. Crying, Laughing, and Ah-Ha moments are the norm. Her vivid Westerns provide great historical fiction, romance, and adventure. Settle yourself for good campfire yarns by curling up with a box of tissues and a warm cup of cocoa.
