About Marsha Ward

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, Indie Author Hub, and Arizona Professional Writers. She makes her home in a tiny forest hamlet in Arizona. When she is not writing, she loves to give talks, meet readers, and sign books.

Reviews of Ride to Raton by Marsha Ward

Jan Brown reviewed on June 5, 2011

This was book 2 of the Owen Family saga. A brother leaves the family homestead in Colorado in anger over a problem with one of his brother's. You can feel his pain and suffering and joys in this story. Another well written story that makes you feel like you are there.

I'm not sure why but I am a sucker for a good western. I really do love them. Maybe it's because I love the west. It's home. Maybe it's because I love a good, tough and rough, handsome male character. Marsha Ward has written a great story here, including the tough ways of the west, love and loss. Then ending was so sad. Poor James. Can't he catch a break?! Well, maybe in the next book?

Marsha Ward's western novel of love, honor and survival is an exciting ride from beginning to end. From watching his brother marry his fiance to rescuing a Mexican bride when her intended is killed, the story kept me reading with good conflict and plenty of action. Just when I thought things were going a little too smoothly, Marsha throws in an unexpected twist. I recommend Ride to Raton.
