Author of 16 Historical Romances and one contemp, my first book, China Rose, was published in 1984. Since then my historical romances have consistently appear on the USA Today list. I have been honored to be the recipient of multiple awards from Romantic Times, including 2 Lifetime Achievement awards, Storyteller of the Year, Medieval of the Year, Swashbuckler of the Year, as well as having been awarded one of a very few five star reviews handed out by Kathe Robin for The Blood of Roses. The Iron Rose was also named as one of the seven best Fiction books of the year by Publishers Weekly.
I have been on a bit of a hiatus for the past few years...five, to be precise...but Smashwords has given me the incentive I needed to get the muse stirring again. It has been truly wonderful to be able to reissue my early books in digital format. Some, like China Rose, Bound by the Heart, and The Wind and the Sea, have not been in print for twenty five years. It was The Wind and the Sea, in fact, that inspired Romantic Times to create the category "Swashbuckler of the Year" and it won the very first award.
I have joined an illustrious group of (to date) 63 authors who are also reviving their out of print books. Visit us at www.backlistebooks.com

Welcome back Marsha. I reread The Iron Rose before I read The following Sea. It was a nice transition to the new book. I enjoyed the book. I realized how uch I missed Marsha. I sure do love a good adventure tale.
