Words have always fascinated Marilyn—their taste, sound, and ability to precisely capture a word or emotion, and, of course, their connotations. But it was not until her third decade that she thought of putting all this experience and knowledge into writing a book. Letter writing (before computers made everything easier) had always been a genuine pleasure. She loved telling stories of daily life, and friends and family enjoyed reading them.
When she finally decided to sit down to write a book, a friend, Maggie Petru, by asking very pertinent questions, gave her guidance with the plot and helped flesh out the characters. Marilyn then set out to develop the words, sentences and paragraphs of her book.
Fascinated by the history of Canada, she is already well into her fourth novel—also set in Marcher Mills, and ideas for many more are percolating madly and demanding attention. You will delight in Marilyn’s turns of phrase and challenges she handles so well in writing about Victorian Canada
Lavinia, Marilyn’s third Marcher Mills novel, is again filled with romance and the twists and turns of developing love. Lavinia, a very modern woman, is a self-sufficient woman, firmly established in bicycle riding, a sport quite revolutionary for its time. But being one of three adopted women, a state in which Victorian times considered loose and socially unacceptable, she is harassed by the brother of her adoptive mother, who is determined to take back all the inheritance left to her. But is the delicious Sam a knight who will save her? A must read.

Marilyn’e second romance novel is called Blind Spot, another Marcher Mills novel, set about 10 years later than her first book.
Amanda and her sister, Faith, are faced with the task of establishing their Wentworth Optometry Services in a new town and a new country. Sebastian Montgomery hired the services of their company to work in conjunction with his pharmacy. He has a traditional view of women, and was unaware her would be dealing with a family of females. Amanda insists the contract is with Wentworth Optometry Services, and not an individual.
