Amy Marshall Bio

This week's special guest is Amy Marshall!

Amy K. Marshall has been an archaeologist, conservator, curator, archivist, wreck diver, Yukon Quest Sled Dog Race Project Coordinator, musical theater director, piano teacher, bassist in a B52s Tribute Band, small business owner, blogger on The Weather Underground, DJ, waitress, line chef, and editor. She is increasingly weirded-out by the tendency of writers to refer to themselves in the third person, so --

I hold a B.A. in Medieval History (this should explain the odd jobs thing) and an M.A. in Maritime History & Nautical Archaeology (this should explain the boat-stalker thing). Currently, I am the Library Director for the small fishing town of Craig on Prince of Wales Island in Alaska. In 2011, I was featured in the video series LIBRARIES: A DIGITAL BRIDGE produced by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation that demonstrated the potential for broadband connectivity in libraries. I continue to be a manic advocate for literacy in all its forms. I reside in Craig with my husband, two teenagers (this should explain the whole horror-writer thing), dark-fairy-hunting cat, and psychotic-but-sweet Border collie. "Let's Go Fishing" is just another way of saying "I Love You."

Not half-bad for the girl who was born and abandoned in the Grover Bungalow Laundry Mat in Lawrence, Kansas in November of 1964. Hey, mom, thanks for the gift of life, and thanks for the compassion of the dime left behind...
