Emily was born in Aspen, Colorado. She attended UNC-Chapel Hill and graduated with a degree in Journalism, but creative writing has always been her passion. She resides in Raleigh, North Carolina with her husband and son. Emily enjoys playing golf, running, kickboxing, reading, and spending time with her family. Marilyn spent her formative years in the San Francisco Bay Area. She graduated from UC-Berkeley with an advanced degree in Elementary Education. In 1996, she was diagnosed with breast and advanced ovarian cancer. She began writing The Bird of Paradise as a life gift for her daughter. She passed away in 2012 leaving the novel unfinished – for Emily to complete. A description of Bird of Paradise can be found on Amazon, which is probably easier rather than cutting and pasting it here.
