Marilyn McVicker's poetry chapbook, Some Shimmer of You, was published by Finishing Line Press in June 2014. Marilyn published her first poem in 1980, while raising her three daughters and working as a solo flutist and music educator. Since then, her essays, articles, and poetry have been published in a wide variety of periodicals and newspapers. McFarland & Company published her book, Sauna Detoxification Therapy, in 1997. Marilyn's fascination with words and self-expression stems from her musicianship and from her family's association with sign language. She is currently working on a memoir.
