Hi! My name is Marcia(pronounced Marsha) Ours.

I was born on December 8, 1958.

I've always loved to write; and, I have been seek-

ing to publish a novel that I wrote several years

ago. My other interests include art(love scenic

pictures), crafts, singing, cooking, church

and church activities, movies and TV(however,

I'm picky about what I watch}, reading, fashion,

spending time with family and friends,

beautiful scenery(mostly country), music, and

some traveling, plays.

I've been married since April of 1992, and have 3 chil-

dren. Two are grown and one is in grade-school. I have one

grandchild, in grade-school. We also have one " adopted"

grandchild, plus some "adopted" children. We

have an " adopted" sibling, as well.My only

brother passed away suddenly, a few years

ago. My parents are gone, as well.

I grew-up in a town, called Markleville, in Indi-

ana. I've spend most of my life in Indiana, ex-

cept for 6 months in Wichita, KS, and 4 years

of college, just outside of Knoxville, TN. I've now

lived in a town, called Elwood, since I got married.

As far as a career goes, I've been subbing in several schools as a Teacher, Aide, and Para. I also work for "Help At Home," with developmentally disabled people, mostly in the summer-time.

And, I love to write!

And, I love to decorate in pink! In fact, I have

pink Christmas trees in my house.

I'm thankful for this opportunity to join the
