About the Author

Marylin – Hayes Martin grew up in the foothills of the Arkansas Ozarks where she was exposed at an early age to the history and culture of the characters in her novel.

She was mesmerized listening to epic tales of the shocking tragedies and hardships endured by the four generations of women in her family. She has woven their stories throughout her novel, Common Thread ─ Uncommon Women.

A number of Marylin’s short stories were published in the White County Arkansas Historical Society publication and more recently, in Second Saturday, a literary anthology published by Ladybug Press which is available from Amazon.

Marylin is the co-founder and facilitator of the Sonora Writers Group. She now lives in the foothills of the California Sierra Mountains with her husband, Frank, where she enjoys life as a writer and visual artist.
