Marsha has always been intrigued with all things romantic but she believes the true test of a romance is embracing the unexpected and bizarre. She ventured into the field of communications, marketing and public relations as a career but in 2012, she decided to take a bold step and work from home and self-publish her work. This would give her time to dedicate herself to her life-long objectives of establishing a Caribbean Foundation for the promotion of books and becoming a published author of a series of novels ranging from romance to fiction to thrillers but all with her signature line of impossible humor.
Her daughter has also inspired her to establish a line of her own Children Books – “Aunty Marsha Children’s Books” which she writes and illustrates personally.
Marsha is the Regional Advisor for the Caribbean South Chapter of the Society of Children Book Writers and Illustrators and is a member of Women in Art of Trinidad and Tobago.
She is married with one child.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I am a bit of a coward when it comes to horror books and movies. So I wanted to write a soft Horror mixed with a Romance that would creep you out, but still warm you back up in the end. So the Ghost at 1 Cheshill Lane is a great Romance story for Halloween.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I live in the Caribbean and I love to write. I found that I spent so much time looking for an agent and/or publisher that all my writing time was slipping away. So I decided to concentrate on what I love to do, which is writing. In the process of writing and publishing on my own, if I meet the right agent or publisher we can talk but right now, this outlet gives me the most realistic chance to get my work to the public and get reviewed, so that I can improve my craft.
