Biography for the Press

Marsha Diane Arnold is an award-winning picture book author, with over one million books sold. The media has called her a “born storyteller” and a “magician of literary innovations.”

Her first book Heart of a Tiger won the Ridgway Award for Best First Book by a New Author. A few of her other many awards include Smithsonian Notable Book for The Pumpkin Runner, three times Dolly Parton Imagination selection for Roar of A Snore, and Junior Library Guild Selection for the three-star reviewed Lost. Found.

When not creating imaginative worlds and wacky characters at her home in Southwest Florida, Marsha enjoys traveling the world and, like her characters, always trying new things.
