(By Tianna, SUNY at Potsdam)

Heidi and HopeHope Irvin Marston is a native of Beech Creek, PA, the eighth child in a farm family of nine.  She started school about the time World War II began.  Since there were no children's books in their home, the monthly visit of the bookmobile to the little one-room schoolhouse on the corner of the farm was a wonderful event in her eyes.

Once she learned to read, Hope never grew tired of books.  She decided at an early age, she would write a book some day.  Thus far that dream has been fulfilled twenty-eight times.

Hope enjoys writing in several genres.  Her current projects include two historical fiction books and another junior biography.

In 1990 she retired to devote her time to writing.  When she isn't working at her computer, you will find her reading, making author appearances, doing research or attending workshops as a presenter or a learner.

She was the founder of the Black River Valley Writers Club and the founder and director of the North Country Children's Writers and Illustrators Workshop.  She has taught creative writing workshops at Jefferson Community College and the Jefferson-Lewis Teacher Center for many years.  She has also been on staff at Christian Writers Conferences at Hephzibah Heights (MA), Montrose Bible Conference (PA), and a St. Davids Christian Writers Conference at Beaver Falls, Pa.  Hope is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and a book reviewer for Church Libraries.
