About the Author

She became a storyteller at an early age, regaling her neighborhood friends with her fanciful tales during after-school snacks. Her love of the 19th Century Western period was reinforced by visits to her cousins on their ranch and listening to her father's stories of homesteading in Old Mexico and in the southern part of Arizona.

Over the years, Marsha became an award-winning poet, writer and editor, with over 900 pieces of published work, including her acclaimed historical Old West novel series, The Owen Family Saga. She is the founder of American Night Writers Association, and a member of Western Writers of America and several other writers' associations. She makes her home in a tiny forest hamlet in Arizona. When she is not writing, she loves to travel, give talks, meet readers, and sign books. Visit her website at marshaward.com.

Ride To Raton by Marsha Ward This second installment of Marsha's post Civil War Saga has James Owens bittered over his brother Carl marrying his promised Ellen. James leaves the family homestead to find his way and winds up with more trouble than he bargained for. He meets a beautiful, but frightened Mexican girl, Amparo Garces, who comes from Santa Fe to Colorado to marry a stranger. James helps, even with their language barrier, to get Amparo back home. By some twist of fate, their lives are forever changed when a marriage of convenience is arranged. They undertake a hazardous horseback trek over Raton Pass to Santa Fe, battling personal demons, language issues, and winter's raging fury. The action is non-stop, as James and Amparo battle outlaws and the elements. I highly recommend this action-packed Western series.
