Product description

About the Author

Marsha Ward was born in the sleepy little town of Phoenix, Arizona, in the southwestern United States; and grew up with chickens, citrus trees, and lots of room to roam. She became a storyteller at an early age, regaling her neighborhood friends with her fanciful tales during after-school snacks. Her love of 19th Century Western history and fiction was reinforced by visits to her cousins on their ranch and listening to her father's stories of homesteading in Old Mexico and in the southern part of Arizona. Over the years, Marsha became an award-winning poet, writer and editor, with over 900 pieces of published work, including her acclaimed American historical novel series, The Owen Family Saga. She is the founder of American Night Writers Association, and a member of Western Writers of America, Women Writing the West, Indie Author Hub, LDStorymakers, and Arizona Professional Writers. She makes her home in a tiny forest hamlet in Arizona. When she is not writing, she loves to travel, give talks, meet readers, and sign books.

Marsha Ward writes authentic historical fiction set in 19th Century America, including the Western Migration following the Civil War. She was born in the sleepy little town of Phoenix, Arizona, in a simpler time, somewhere in the middle of seven children. That may account for her love of large, boisterous families, and her OWEN FAMILY novels and stories.

With plenty of room to roam among the chickens and citrus trees on her family's property, Marsha enjoyed playing with neighborhood chums until her mother rang the cowbell at nightfall, but she always had her imaginary friend, cowboy Johnny Rigger Prescott, at her side. Now she makes her home in a forest in the mountains of Arizona. She loves to hear from her readers.

THE OWEN FAMILY SAGA series, currently containing a novella and five novels, is ongoing because the Characters in Marsha's Head keep begging for their own stories. Marsha continues to add new adventures to the OWEN FAMILY Universe, and companion stories to the spin-off world labeled SHENANDOAH NEIGHBORS.

For maximum reading pleasure, stories in the THE OWEN FAMILY SAGA and other OWEN FAMILY and SHENANDOAH NEIGHBORS stories are best read in the following order:

* That Tender Light: An Owen Family Novella (the Origin Story - 1840)

* The Apple Pie Prize: An Owen Family Story (1850)
