About the Author

Marian Milner McCarthy is a writer with a long career as a freelancer, corporate communications consultant, technical copywriter, columnist, ghostwriter, editor and writing teacher.?In 2014, she turned her focus to fiction. The result is BENEATH THE WILD BLUE, a mainstream novel about a military family in the middle of the twentieth century. Is it a memoir? No. Is it based on her experience as a Baby Boomer military brat? Yes. ?Like most military brats, Marian has always hungered for stories that reflect her own peculiar childhood--moving frequently, making and losing friends, giving complicated answers when someone asks about a “hometown.” She was in awe of Pat Conroy’s THE GREAT SANTINI, not only for the writing, but for its honest portrayal of one military family. ?But plenty of military families, including her own, did not have an abusive father who bullied the family into submission. Marian’s own father, a decorated Air Force pilot who served in three wars, was always a lover, not a fighter, at home. As in most military families, her strong mother was the one who martialed the troops at home, made sure the kids passed muster, and held them all together each and every time they moved. ??Please visit Marian’s website at ? follow her on Facebook at Marian McCarthy, Author
