Marilyn Bay – P.O.W.E.R. Certified Speaker


Marilyn Bay grew up on a sheep and crop farm in northern Colorado and recently moved back to the family farm from where she writes historical fiction and non-fiction. Her published books include “Prairie Grace” and “Prairie Truth,” both set in Colorado in the 1800s. By writing highly-researched fiction about areas and events that experienced cultural clashes, she aims to provide hope and understanding to address today’s divisiveness. Her non-fiction title “All We Like Sheep – Lessons from the Sheepfold,” is co-authored with her mother Mildred Nelson Bay. It features stories from the duo’s collective seven decades of raising sheep and is written in a devotional format. Learn more at: www.MarilynBay.com

In addition to her author career, Marilyn has worked in agricultural communication and association management for three decades. She lived in Costa Rica for six months and in Taiwan for five years and speaks Spanish and some Mandarin. She is a 4-H leader and judges local horse shows.
