Marsha Moyer

Marsha Moyer was born in Austin and grew up in Bryan/College Station in central Texas. After graduating from Bryan High School, she attended the University of Texas at Austin, and for the next 25 years held a variety of jobs, including those of secretary to two animal scientists in the field of swine management, newsletter editor at the Texas A&M computing center, and assistant to the late chemist Karl Folkers, whose work in the field of coenzyme Q10 research is world-renowned.

Marsha has written fiction since childhood, and in 1990 was awarded a three-month residency from the Syvenna Foundation for women writers in northeast Texas. Almost a decade later, the East Texas experience came full circle when she began the manuscript which would ultimately yield two novels, The Second Coming of Lucy Hatch and The Last of the Honky-tonk Angels. A portion of the original manuscript was chosen first-place winner in the mainstream division of the Austin Writers’ League manuscript competition in July 2000, and in May 2001, publisher William Morrow purchased, at auction, The Second Coming of Lucy Hatch (published in 2002) and its sequel, The Last of the Honky-tonk Angels (to be published in June 2003). Sales to Random House Australia and Sony Magazines Japan followed.

A lifelong resident of her home state, Marsha is presently at work on another novel about life in small-town Texas.
