Marie Bostwick | Fiction and Addictions
November 14, 2008
Itís time for a confession. For years now, Iíve harbored a secret addiction. Iím not talking about my addiction to books. For  Read More...

Marie Bostwick Skinner was born in Eugene, Oregon and raised in the Northwest. She vividly remembers the day she got her very own library card. "I was about three years old and had just learned to write my first and last name, a skill which qualified me to become a library patron. I nagged my poor mother until she drove me downtown to get my card so I could check out my first book 'Hop On Pop' by Dr. Seuss."

It was the beginning of a lifetime love affair with the written word. As a girl, Marie wrote love stories featuring lots of handsome princes in fast cars and extensive descriptions of the heroine's wardrobe. In high school she began writing short stories and, "lots of sad, self-pitying, teenage poetry."

Marie was lucky enough to meet the love of her life, Brad at a young age. However, between marriage, motherhood, finishing her college education, and moving a score of times for her husband's career, there wasn't much time left for writing. Life was happy just the same. Marie enjoyed raising her three sons, working in a variety paid and volunteer jobs, and making time for hobbies like quilting, cooking, and reading . . . always reading.

In 1994, Marie wandered into a writer's workshop and her old romance with words was rekindled. At the instructor's urging, she began writing again. She completed one short story a month for more than three years though she never submitted them, feeling her work was not yet ready for publication. Marie plugged away; raising her sons, doing volunteer work, taking seminary courses, working in professional ministry, and month by month teaching herself to write. Finally one of her short stories refused to stay short. It grew into Marie's first novel, FIELDS OF GOLD, published by Kensington in September of 2005.

Marie lives in Oregon with Brad, her husband of thirty-five years. When not writing, she enjoys quilting, reading, cooking, spending time with family and friends, and especially playing with her grandsons. Marie travels extensively, speaking at libraries, bookstores, quilt guilds, and at quilt shows. She has been a featured speaker at the Paducah Quilt Festival and the Houston International Quilt Festival and has given keynote addresses at both the Florida Writers Association and La Jolla Writers conferences.
