About the Author:

Marnie grew up on a general farm in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. She helped care for pigs, cattle, cats, dogs and other assorted crops, along with two sisters, Julie, and Lauree, and one brother, Paul. She is the oldest in the family. Amongst others, she is related to William Wallace, (who is a distant cousin), and Sir Adam Beck, who managed to harness hydro-electricity at Niagara Falls. She played hockey on a boys’ team, as ringette was the only option for females at the time. She has returned to Ontario after spending almost 20 years in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. She started writing after having a terrible experience when her wisdom teeth were removed. It was her way of therapy, and others pushed her to publish her work, which she did.

Marnie wishes to thank all those who are willing to read her work.
