Marjorie Appleby 

M. A Appleby, pen name for Marjorie Appleby, is an avid reader and mystery buff who enjoys traveling to faraway places. She was born and raised in Ohio; where she wore many hats through the years; hairdresser, draftsman, wife, mother, 24/7 caregiver, and now author. An Associate Degree in Office and Business Administration helped her run the office for her son David's recording studio/sound and lighting business. Marjorie also worked for a landscape company, became a Certified Landscape Designer, Horticulturist, and Master Gardener. In 2006, her life was sidetracked when David suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury, just 12 days after moving to Florida with his family. Uprooted and transplanted to Naples to become her son's caregiver, Marjorie learned how to cope with brain injury, high humidity, and a 'not so empty nest.' With her positive attitude, she took her family's true life-altering event and blended it into a trio of books called A Whisper Mystery Trilogy - a story about a fictional family who goes on an incredible adventure of mystery, self-discovery and recovery, as they learn how to cope with their new family dynamics. Marjorie lectures about Brain Injury Awareness, and her journey of developing, writing, publishing, and marketing these novels.
