Marilynn Farmer


Marilynn Farmer is a writer, art lover and mother of two living off the grid in a sod house on the great Midwest plain of Illinois who weaves baskets out of prairie grass in her spare time. Okay, not really. She lives in a subdivision near Chicago with running water and shops at Target, but reserves the right to periodically escape to southwest Michigan because it has more trees.

Marilynn is a survivor of stage IIIa breast cancer (2011). Cancer sucks, so please please PLEASE support metastatic cancer research. It is THE only way to a cure, people. Pink ribbons, "awareness" and the loads of crap pink merchandise being pedaled out there will NEVER stop anyone from dying. For more information on how you can help please visit Metavivor.

In her spare time Marilynn likes to stare into the abyss of her own mortality but has also been known to read, write, watch movies and visit estate sales. She thinks Facebook is creepy and has worked as a paperboy, ice cream server, fabric store clerk, soap store clerk, sandwich shop artist, theater counter server, negative developer, paste-up artist, newspaper ad compositor, human resources assistant, beauty school records officer, advertising sales rep, retail sales clerk, resume writer, adminstrative assistant, antiques dealer, jewelry designer, and once operated the duck pond game at an amusement park.

Smashwords Interview

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords is a great way to get exposure through many venues (e-retailers) at once. It's fairly easy to use and I like having my own author page right on Smashwords.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to create another reality with words. It's very interesting to be able to take people to another place and/or time and take them on a journey.
