Author of the Corpus Christi Mysteries series
Author Alice Marks has moved around as much as Sandra Lewis, heroine of her suspense novels Missing and Breaks. Born in Wyoming, she grew up there and received her undergraduate degree at the University of Wyoming. In 1967 She and her husband, Sam, and two babies moved to Minnesota where both had careers in education and reared four children. In 2005 Sam and Alice moved to Port Aransas, Texas, an island town on the Gulf of Mexico. Corpus Christi is by accessible by ferry and highway or by highway, JFK bridge and Causeway. After soaking up the sun for eight years and enjoying life in a much different culture, including the energy of Spring Break, the couple returned to Minnesota in 2013 to spend their retirement years. They live in Duluth, where both are involved in music (Sam directs the Duluth Civic Orchestra, and Alice plays flute) and where Alice is involved in many aspects of writing including activities of Lake Superior Writers, leading a writers group, Ink Slingers, and teaching writing workshops and classes. Alice has been published in several anthologies for short stories and poetry. One of her poems will be featured in a dance-poetry collaboration.
