About the Author
Marilyn was born in Oldham, England. Her career pathway has been varied, starting out as an industrial chemist, eventually setting up a company manufacturing toiletry products. Teaming up with her now husband Marilyn was involved for many years in a light engineering company. Since retiring from business she has been editing and publishing children's books for her husband and poetry and life-story books for various private clients. She has also worked as a bereavement support worker for a charity organisation.
Confined to lockdown for the past twelve months, she finally fulfilled a long-cherished ambition, to write her own fiction, and Karma is her debut novel. She has now completed a second, Secrets and Lives, which will be released in early June 2021
Marilyn enjoys writing about relationships and is fascinated by the way in which decisions made with the best of intentions often result in unexpected and sometimes tragic consequences. She is currently working on a novel based on one of her ancestors who worked at the ironworks of Abraham Darby in Coalbrookdale in 1715, at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution. She admits that this one may take some time.
Marilyn has twenty grandchildren and four, soon to be five, great grandchildren of whom she is understandably extremely proud. As one can imagine, they keep her fairly busy, particularly when it comes to remembering birthdays..
