Marsha Roberts


Marsha began her professional career as a scrub nurse in open-heart surgery, but her gypsy spirit wouldn't leave her alone. At 23 she walked away from that life to travel and seek new adventures. She worked as an art director, stage manager and film editor. Along the way she discovered a knack for selling creative projects and produced marketing films and elaborate Corporate Theatre presentations for IBM, Coca-Cola, Revlon, Georgia-Pacific and Domino's Pizza among others.

This led the way to developing and producing a full theatrical production, "Letters From the Front," the only professional play to tour American military bases around the world. Her travels took her to Germany, England, Belgium, Italy, Spain, S. Korea, Japan, Guam and the Indian Ocean, plus virtually every major city in the states including in Alaska and Hawaii -- all with her kid in tow.

This heartfelt show touched hundreds of thousands of lives, toured for fifteen years and was the first play ever to perform at the Pentagon. The daunting process of getting this never-been-done-before production off the ground and onto a worldwide stage gave her a keen awareness of what it takes to overcome life's obstacles and find the miraculous in the commonplace.

Marsha is currently working on her second Mutinous Baby Boomer book. You can find out more and contact Marsha on her website.

Marsha was never afraid to be bold because she knew if she stumbled, angels would catch her. Her secret formula for happiness was a connection to God that seemed magical. Angels and miracles worked better than a credit card with no limit. All of that changed without warning. If you've ever wondered what happens when real life collides with real miracles, this book belongs on your nightstand.

    This short story is a quick, easy and very fun read from the author of "The Gordonston Ladies Dog Walking Club," which I read a few weeks ago and just loved! His most recent story is written in the same dark comedy and at times tongue-in-cheek manner of his novel. And, like his Ladies Dog Walking Club, the characters are very vivid and no matter how flawed they are, he presents them to us with a surprising amount of humanity. There is always the irony of the consequences of small moments in our lives in Mr. Whitehead's writing, and I like that. As in his Gordonston book, there is a mystery here, but it's not the focus of this entertaining read, and I won't tell you any more as I wouldn't want to spoil it for you. Enjoy this free read, then treat yourself to his full novel - you won't regret it!
