Marguerite, born August 19, 1975 in Midland, Texas, is the author of Once Upon a Western Way, Keeping a Backyard Horse, and My Butterfly Cancer. She is called Markie by family and friends. She grew up in Flushing, Michigan, where she began to write stories when she was a teenager. She married in 1994 and now has 2 teenage daughters. She has 3 rescue dogs and a horse whom she enjoys spending time with. She now resides in a small country town in Missouri, where she continues to write. She is also a cancer survivor, battling leukemia (AML) in 2013-2014. She hopes that her newest book, Keeping a Backyard Horse, will help prevent accidental mistreatment of horses, and help educate horse owners in taking care of their horse even on a budget. She raised and trained her horse Athena.
In 2014, she founded Metamorph Publishing as a way to self-publish her books, and she's now working with other indie authors as well.

I loved this book! It was a wonderful read. Excellent premise from the beginning, and the plot just kept twisting and kept the reader guessing! Would like to see more from these characters. Awesome job!

This style guide was a complete blessing for me! It was so easy to get my formatting correct that my first book passed on the first try! And I knew next to nothing about Word! But I'd really like to see an updated edition: Word 2007 is impossible to find and Office 365 which I'm using now is very different! Nice job!
