At last...

Updated: Jun 3, 2020

I’m beyond thrilled that my book, The Orange Woods – Seasons in the Country Lived Artfully – has just been released.

The road to publication is a long and arduous journey.

Whew, I made it.

I do harbor one regret. I wish my book had pictures in it—so much of it is about art.

It doesn’t.

However, the cover of my memoir is taken from an astonishing painting of what else—oranges—by an artist you need to know.

The artist, Linda Pickering, lives and creates in my secret place of the world, Pauma Valley.

Her expressive and bold work is highly regarded and collected by patrons in many parts of the world.

Here's detail from the painting she sold just this week - Pears!

And here's what she does with pomegranates.

What does it say about an author and her book when the cover art garners more attention than the story inside the book?

Oh me…


It is a lovely cover, but I'm eager to get to the words inside!


We are thrilled for you!! Ordered wish it would get here!😊❤️J & J

Congrats Marilyn!

What happy news in this heavy time.  I hope you are feeling proud.
