About the Author

Hope Irvin Marston is the author of more than thirty children's books and several adult titles. She has written MY LITTLE BOOK wildlife picture book series that has grown to eight titles with more than 125,000 copies in print. A number of her publications are award-winners. Her most recently released story, Eye on the Iditarod: Aisling's Quest (Windward, December, 2011), is the biography of an eleven-year old Maine musher.

A native of central Pennsylvania, the eighth child in a farm family of nine, Hope is a graduate of Milligan College (TN) and of SUNY at Geneseo. She and her husband of more than fifty years share their Black River (NY) home with Heidi, a lovable Bernese mountain dog. A former junior high school teacher/librarian in Watertown (NY), Hope retired in 1990 to write full time. Her bio is listed in Something about the Author (Gale).

She is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, the Adirondack Center for Writing, the Greater Thousand Islands Literacy Council, the Jeff-Lewis Librarians Association, the St. Lawrence County Arts Council, and the North Country Arts Council. She has been on staff for several Christian Writers Conferences and has taught creative writing workshops at Jefferson Community College (NY), the Jefferson-Lewis Teacher Center, and the North Country Arts Council.

Hope enjoys making school presentations from kindergarten through post-graduate college students and directs writing workshops for kids and adults. When she is not researching, reading or writing, you are apt to find her cooking or baking in the kitchen, or out walking Heidi.

Now that Sackets Harbor Powder Monkey - The War of 1812, her second historical novel, has been released in both Kindle and print versions, Hope is back at her desk doing a final editing of her next historical work, Hannah Brown - Pioneer Girl.
