About the author

Marie Zurenda: Marie Zurenda has a B.A. in psychology. She is also an artist and poet who is not quite satisfied with her work. Married with two daughters and five grandchildren, she has been working with a European airline for the past 15 years. Happiest is she when spending time reading in her quite extensive library and when tending her lush tropical garden. She prefers to observe nature through the eyes of a child. Once a week, as often as she can spare it, she volunteers at her local old and antique bookstore, Dunbar Old Books, where she is apt to purchase a volume or two for her ever-growing collection.
