TEACHER, AUTHOR, BLOGGER
Basically, I like to read and talk and write about books! I got B.A. in Humanities and later went back for an M.A. in Literature, after which I wrote a monthly column on the classics for an online magazine for seven years. Over a thousand people joined my online book club and we read the classics together in our jammies. As a result I wrote Back to the Best Books: How the Classics Can Change Your Life. It is a study of 36 classic works of literature for people who want to get into the books they wish they had read! Your book group will love it.
Five years ago I retired as Senior Content Creator at FMG Suite, one of two companies my husband Craig has founded, and for which I have written lots of financial stuff (though I still can’t balance a checkbook) including ghost-writing The Art of Digital Marketing: A How-to Guide for Financial Professionals, for Craig.
Since 2012 I have taught a weekly scripture class for the Del Mar, California Stake. This has been a delightful project, and has led to a series of scripture study guides with a fresh take on the sacred stories. We started in 2015 with The User-friendly Book of Mormon: Timeless Truths for Today’s Challenges, followed in 2017 by The User-friendly Old Testament: A Modern Approach to Ancient Scripture. Next up is The User-friendly New Testament: Finding Ourselves in the Stories of Jesus.
Craig and I live in Rancho Santa Fe, California with our dogs, Frankie and Jonny. We are the parents of five children and the grandparents of nine and counting.
You can find my scripture classes on YouTube at Marilyn Green Faulkner. And I’d love to hear from you via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
