Linley B. Marcum
I am a lifelong resident of southern West Virginia, from a small coal mining town in the heart of Appalachia. I hold a degree in English from the University of Illinois at Springfield, and am currently pursuing an MFA in creative writing. I specialize in fantasy and horror fiction but I have a passion for storytelling and I am a proponent of literature and the arts in my community. My fantasy novels and award-winning horror short stories can be found on Amazon. I collect ghost story collections from the cities I visits, and I enjoy coaching high school swimming, crochet, and online gaming with My husband and son. For the past 30 years I have been a secretary, and I'm looking forward to a change of pace and becoming a published writer.
