Meet Sandra K Marshall- author of The Catalyst!

Untitled Document


I'm author, Sandra K. Marshall, and I write romantic suspense, contemporary romance and short stories for Eirelander Publishing.  Today, I'm here to tell you a bit about myself and what I think about our world.

My first career was in aviation.  I worked for Trans World Airlines (TWA) in various positions for thirty-six years.  During that time, I traveled extensively.  Some of the parts of the world I went to are in horrible turmoil today, but that's another story.

While at TWA, I started writing stories, but it wasn't the first time I wrote something.  In the third grade I wrote a skit and played the part.  The skit started my story telling, but it was many years before I wrote anything else but letters.  My friends and acquaintances loved to receive letters from me because I could embellish the most mundane things.  Enough about me; I want to tell you what I think about life.

Life is complicated, and sometimes we have very little control over what happens to us.  Crimes go unsolved, criminals go unpunished and the innocent may be punished for something they didn't do.  All of this is the way life is, but we don't have to like it.

As an author, I have complete (once in a while they get away from me) control over my characters.  I can make them do anything I want.  My heroine and hero will find their HEA (happy ever after), but they suffer a lot before they reach that point.  It's just like in real life; there are a lot of ups and downs.  The villains will most definitely be caught and pay for their crimes, which is not always the way actual events happen.

My first book, The Catalyst is being re-released with a new cover.  

Blurb for The Catalyst

Dark revelations and secret love lead to personal resurrection.

Carolyn Madison didn't kill her husband but didn't mourn him either. The rapist deserved to die, or at least she thought so. Beneath a myriad of family secrets, Carolyn drags the skeletons out of the closet and in the arms of her true love, learns to love again.

Walt Tollhouse has pined for Carolyn since she was a shy seventeen-year-old. Little did he know Robert Dubois would steal her away, and then destroy the beautiful spirit he still loved. Beneath the guise of clean-up man, the martial arts instructor never pushes his battered love but gives her silent support she deserves.
