Marilyn Gregoire grew up in various small towns in northeastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota—on the outskirts, looking out. When she met and married her sweetheart, Jon, they moved out into the country and the prairie has had her heart ever since. She is a secretary for the Department of Theatre Arts at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks and loves her job. But writing fiction is a creative outlet and a very exhilarating hobby. She and Jon also raise animals, birds and a big garden on their farm. Whether picking a long row of green beans or cleaning a big farm house, Marilyn uses the mundane work to develop characters and story lines. Marilyn and Jon both enjoy their grown children and grandchildren.
Her faith in God has always been a priority in her life and helping the church through music ministry has been a blessing since she enjoys the friendship of like-minded believers who help motivate and inspire Marilyn in real and enduring ways!
