Marie Bartlett, Journalist, Photographer, Creative Non-fiction Writer, and Public Relations Consultant

Marie Bartlett has dedicated more than 25 years of her life as a creative nonfiction writer and public relations consultant. Born in Melbourne, Australia to an Australian mother and an American father, she has four published non-fiction books, hundreds of feature articles in print and four books, based upon true stories, she produced as a ghost-writer. She also serves as a consultant to clients who set out to write their own books and stories.

A former member of the American Society of Journalists & Authors (ASJA), she is now a member of the Western Writers of America. She earned a Masters degree in Education from Western Carolina University, not far from her home outside of Asheville, North Carolina.

Pearl, MD is her first novel, which evolved from many years as a nonfiction researcher and a love of history, especially the late 19th century. A sequel is planned in which her main character travels west to the Arizona Territory in 1884.
