Review

Marsha Ward's clear and vivid writing sweeps us along with her characters on their adventures. --Western Fiction Review

Whatever happened to good, old fashioned westerns? If you've ever gazed over the shelves wondering this, Ms. Ward has a book for you. --Cindy Lynn, Midwest Book Review--Reviewer's Bookwatch, September 2003

I found THE MAN FROM SHENANDOAH immediately mesmerizing." --Jennifer Hill-Russell, Roundtable Reviews, October 15, 2003

From the Author

When I began writing what eventually became The Man from Shenandoah, I had no idea how long it would take to become an actual printed book. I was a teenager, so I doubt I was even thinking in terms of publication as I created the Owen family and their neighbors in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. For some reason, I kept those early efforts that I had typed on a manual typewriter, and they went with me when I married.

In the 1980s, I began to study writing with a view toward publication, and started winning contests and selling articles, poems, and short stories. I dug out the novel manuscript, spiffed it up a bit, and began submitting it. I even acquired an agent! I got some nice comments, but truthfully, the novel wasn't ready to be published. I performed radical surgery on it, and then began a sequel, Ride to Raton.

Life happened, and the urge to publish didn't come around again until I had a severe health crisis. Determined not to leave this earth without publishing my novels, I decided to pursue self-publishing. With eyes wide open, I chose iUniverse as the vehicle, and began hand-selling to family, friends, and others I met at writing conferences and events. To my great surprise and pleasure, readers loved the book, so I began polishing Ride to Raton. It also was received well. After life happened again, I finally produced Trail of Storms, which I thought would wrap up the series. I was wrong, as I'm writing another story about a member of the Owen family.

I'm often asked why I self-publish. My career as a journalist and many complimentary reviews of my works from industry insiders have proven that there is nothing lacking with my writing skills, and I could be published by the traditional means. However, because the self-publishing process is much speedier than traditional publishing, I continue to use that method to bring you my novels.

Thank you for your gracious reviews. You have no idea how they comfort me on dark days when the writing doesn't flow. They also both humble and daunt me. Will my next book live up to your expectations? I'm working hard to make that happen.

~Marsha Ward
