Katie Marsh is an indie author, wife, and mother of two. With health and fitness as lifelong passions, she spent time as an Ironman triathlete and attended a vegetarian cooking school in NYC. She worked many years as a freelance court reporter and as a stenographer for the US House of Representatives. Bored and looking for adventure, she took off backpacking part of the world, spending time in Thailand, Cambodia, Australia, and Hawaii. After a long bout with severe, crippling rheumatoid arthritis, she discovered a natural cure by drinking daily cannabis juice smoothies. As a result, she's become a passionate medical marijuana activist, speaking on radio shows around the US. Today she lives with her family and many critters on a 25-acre burgeoning sustainable farm in Northern Maine.
