Marsha Raymond


Marsha Raymond began her writing career at a young age. Turning her walk-in closet into an office, she sat for hours writing stories by hand, to her mother's chagrin. "You're going to get carpal tunnel syndrome" her mom would say.
Marsha graduated from Kent State University and previously worked in retail management and human resources. She is now a stay at home mom and avid gardener, who enjoys reading and playing endless rounds of Sudoku on her smart phone. Happily married with two sons, she also volunteers at a crisis pregnancy center. She is yet to be diagnosed with carpal tunnel.

Smashwords Interview

Why did you publish on Smashwords?
The main reason I chose to publish on Smashwords is because it is an easy and reputable site to use. It allowed me to publish for virtually no cost and helped walk me through the Ebook process. My dream is to be traditionally published and I hope that by starting with an Ebook, I can gain momentum and interest in my work.
What are you working on next?
I have started a sequel to The Secrets Next Door. The main character willl be Elise's younger sister Rebecca. We will also see more of Livie and Bill as well.
