M* welcomes Marsha Ward!

After a careful criminal background check with local law-enforcement (you can’t be too careful these days), we have determined that Marsha is indeed not a criminal, but rather the newest M* permablogger.

From her personal web site:

 Marsha Ward was born in the sleepy little town of Phoenix, Arizona, and grew up with chickens, citrus trees, and lots of room to roam. An avowed “tomboy,” Marsha began telling stories at a very early age, regaling her neighborhood chums with her tales over homemade sugar cookies. Visits to her cousins on their ranch and listening to her father’s stories of homesteading in Old Mexico and in the Tucson area reinforced Marsha’s love of 19th Century Western history.

After fifty+ years in the city, Marsha now makes her home in a tiny hamlet under Central Arizona’s magnificent Mogollon Rim. When she is not writing, she loves to spoil her grandchildren, travel, give talks, meet readers, and sign books.

Homemade sugar cookies will be passed out in the foyer immediately following the seminar on “How not to break a window with a flashlight“. :-)

Welcome, Marsha!!

  1. I still remember reading Marsha’s articles in the Arizona Beehive, the local LDS newspaper in the Phoenix area.

    Marsha, we are so excited to have you share your talents and stories with everyone on M*!!

  2. Thanks for the warm welcome. Shall I do my post on learning what a button on the driver-side armrest of my car really does? Or do you all want to hear about book signings (I had a solo one for four hours today)? I promise I’ll usually leaven my posts with humor, since that attribute has gotten me through a lot of tragedies in my life.
