HOME Marion Crook creates adventures, mysteries and practical books of instruction. She researches her fiction as carefully as she researches her nonfiction, interviewing people who meet challenges, hardship, joy and excitement.

 

I have travelled from the rural community of Arctic Bay to the Appalachian hills of Kentucky, continually seeking new ideas from the people I meet. I am , primarily, a writer, but I have been a rancher, public health nurse, researcher and a university teacher. I enjoy talking to writers who look for inspiration and tips about writing. The world of social meda allows us all more exciting exchanges between writers and readers. You are invited to participate on my website.
