She worked for the Ocala Star-Banner newspaper for 30 years. She also has written articles for the Ocala Gazette, Ocala Style Magazine, and Billy Graham’s Decision Magazine.

Several of Marian’s novels have won awards at Florida Christian Writers Association conferences and Word Weavers International retreats. In 2018, her suspense novel, Muldovah, was a finalist in the Genesis competition at the American Christian Fiction Writers Conference. Two of her novels earned Amazon Best Seller status.

Marian earned a bachelor’s degree in Bible education from Luther Rice Seminary. She trained for jungle missions with New Tribes (now ETHNOS 360), and she served for two semesters at a Youth With A Mission training center in Southern Spain. An in-person tour of the Holy Land provided much of the backdrop for In the Boat with Jesus, as well as her biblical-era novels.
