ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Marilyn D. Anderson grew up on a dairy farm in Minnesota. Her love for animals and her many years of training and showing horses are reflected in the subject matter of many of the 28 books she’s had published. In her latter years with horses, she specialized in the Olympic sport of dressage, earning a Bronze medal from the United States Dressage Federation and a small “r” judges card. .
Before becoming an author she taught both instrumental and vocal music to children in grades 1-12 in Minnesota, Vermont, and Indiana. Her favorite memories are of being the band director at Mill River Union High School, North Clarendon, Vermont. She is still active in her church as choir director and substitute organist.
In 1985 she wrote a book called BARKLEY COME HOME for School Book Fairs/ Willowisp Press that was reprinted many times. This book and its two sequels sold almost half a million copies before Willowisp went out of business. Since then she has written nonfiction books for other publishers and has spun new stories that are available in e-book formats. WE NEED BARKLEY is the long awaited 45th book in the Barkley series.
