Marilyn Bostick was born in Phoenix, Arizona, the second oldest of four children. After a high school she joined the Arizona Army National Guard.
She worked briefly at the Arizona Army National Headquarters in the Logistics section. "It was very interesting and a lot of fun. After her first son was born she tried being a stay at home mother. She took work into her home from a jewelry maker across the way. Eventually went back to school until her second son was born. After many years of motherhood, and various careers she finally went back to school to learn to be what she always wanted to be. A writer. She attended Full Sail University and received a Bachelor's of Fine Arts Degree in Creative Writing for Entertainment. During her time as a student she wrote many stories and had a couple published in the university's literary magazine The Aviator. She also developed many story ideas that will keep her busy for many years to come.
Through the years, Marilyn has raised two sons. She is a member of several writers groups and enjoys them all, online or real world groups.
When she was a kid she spent much of her time reading. While she did dishes she would prop a book up over the faucet so she could read while performing her chore.
In high school she started writing stories. The first story was a gothic romance with elements of murder and mystery. She never sent out her stories but she did let friends read them and received many compliments. Now she writes in her spare time between assignments and required socialization with family and friends.
She lives in Sun City Grand in Surprise, Arizona. It is a great place to write. No blaring radios from the neighbors or kids running up and down outside her house screaming and caterwauling. It would be even better if she received no distractions whatsoever while writing.
A good friend of hers enrolled in Full Sail University on Marilyn's recommendation. Her friend is going for a degree in graphic design and is currently helping Marilyn set up an Author website and doing covers for her books. Her friend is exceptionally talented and they have come together on a working partnership where her friend does all of her design work.
Marilyn is a voracious reader, writes every chance she gets, loves to cross-stitch and spend time with her grandchildren.
She reads mysteries, Sci-fi, horror, and the occasional romance as long as it has scary parts in it. She motivates herself to get the stories rumbling through her mind onto paper.
