J. B. “Joey” Marsden recently moved back to her family farm. Even while spending many years in more urban areas in New York, Michigan, and Kentucky, she retained her passion for rural life. She held a professorship in rural health systems research for over twenty years, publishing extensively, so as not to perish.
Joey has dreamed of being a published fiction author since she wrote her first short story at age ten. Her writing studio overlooks quiet, verdant fields in the Mississippi Valley of Central Illinois, where she lives with her wife, her most avid supporter. Joey loves writing, reading, photography, cards, golf, swimming, biking, and being outdoors at her farm.
