Marilyn Friesen is an avid writer who enjoys bringing history to life in a way that will both inspire and encourage her readers. Right now she is researching for and writing an autobiography of seven children who were orphaned at an early age. These children grew up in the Linden, Alberta area. It's a fascinating story for anyone who wants to know what their prairie-born grandparents went through.

She is a wife, mother, and grandmother who enjoys gardening, pets, being a hostess for two bed and breakfasts, and of course writing!
