About the Author

Marsha can’t remember a time when she wasn’t writing or thinking about a story that needed to be told. She splits her time between her residence in Orlando, Florida, and spending time with her sons in Detroit, Michigan. In her free time, you can find her reading books in every genre, taking walks, and trying out new recipes.

While spending time with middle graders and teenagers, she began to notice their love of science fiction and fantasy worlds. This helped spark her debut YA novel, Spoilers. However, it was important to her that the characters in the story reflect the diversity in our society.
