Drawing on her lifelong love of quilting and themes of special relevance to modern women, Marie’s Cobbled Court Quilt series has gained a dedicated following among quilters as well as those who’ve never threaded and needle and don’t plan to try. The first book in the series, A Single Thread, published in 2008, and is now in its eighteenth printing. That book, as well the third book in the series, A Thread So Thin, were included in Reader’s Digest Select Editions.

Ties that Bind has been nominated as Best Mainstream Novel of 2012 by RT BOOK Reviews Magazine. In 2014, Marie was recognized for Career Achievement in Mainstream Novels award by the same organization.

Marie’s latest endeavor is her recently-launched lifestyle blog, FierceBeyond50, a community for women to seize and celebrate their maturity, leading lives of significance, empowerment, and joy.

Marie lives in Oregon with Brad, her husband of thirty-seven years. When not writing, she enjoys quilting, reading, cooking, spending time with family and friends, and especially playing with her grandkids. Marie travels extensively, speaking at libraries, bookstores, quilt guilds, and at quilt shows.
