Well, I have the cover designed for THE MAN ON THE BUS and I’m getting the Parts/Chapters formatted for Kindle on Amazon with the rest of my books. So far, I am up to Part 6 and on the down side of this story, I hope. I want to keep working and writing with the previous critiques formost in my mind. Getting a lot of great feedback. Thanks to all MARCIA


New York Bound or not

Well, let me tell you a little about my newest story entitled: THE MAN ON THE BUS.

Melina is taking a bus home from visiting her grandmother in Toronto, Canada.  She’s sitting in a window seat, partially asleep.  Someone sits beside her, and she opens her eyes to see an Indigenous male sitting there.  She closes her eyes wondering why with all the empty seats on the bus, he had to sit beside her.  He settles in and leans back and closes his eyes. 

Fleeing Into the Woods

After he is bothered by another passenger on the bus, they exchange names and talk briefly.  Henri is a Shaman and she soon gathers slightly psychic.  His humorous reply to one of the police officers who have boarded the bus looking for a murdering couple, gets them removed for further questioning and left behind at the station.

When there is a problem with another stopped bus, Henri abruptly says they should leave the station where they are awaiting questioning.  He brings her out the back door.  She follows him into the woods where they hear gunfire and then an explosion. Then they see smoke.  They end up running for their lives.  Getting a rental car, she brings him to her home.  When he goes to return the rental vehicle, Henri disappears; Melina is left at her home feeling abandoned.  Henri did leave a little part of himself with her.


Well, it’s week two of my writing course. I’m working on my second short story and trying to accomplish all my assignments while under quarantine in Harrisburg, PA. Of course, over the winter I’m pretty much house bound anyway but my husband is suffering from cabin fever. We writers just hunker down and let the words flow onto the blank page. I’m getting to meet fellow classmates and read their stories while they critique and read mine. I’m hoping this course will help me improve my writing as well as build a support group. Time will tell, and I might also.

MARCIA – First Blog 4/12/2020

Marcia’s first blog.  I signed up for the Write Practice class and this old dog (lady) is learning to blog.  You are the first of my readers to get to read my first ever blog.  I joined Write Practice group and I am writing a short story for in there. I now have twenty-one completed novels.  At the present time, I am working on number twenty-two HER WRITING WARDEN.  Also, in the future is my first attempt at a Science Fiction with a working title of Escaping Earth.  I hope if you are looking for an escape you will give one of my stories a read. You can meet the characters here on my web page and read a brief synopsis of the story in each book.  I have copies of each of my books stored in my office at home.  I will gladly send you a copy to read.  I hope you will give me feedback on whatever story you select to read.  If you like romance with a bit of trouble and strife, check out HIS TEXAS TROUBLE.  If you like romances with a mystery to solve, check out FATE LENDS A HAND.  If you’re into roller coaster rides get your hands on CAT AND HER COWBOY.  You’ll travel with them through Scotland, Maine, Texas and Oklahoma and flee from tornadoes, wild dogs and wild men.

When I retired in 2015, my husband told me to stay home and write. I warned him that writing for me is all consuming and other jobs will suffer.  Of course, his dinner was always ready when he got home from work.  In 2018, my husband retired and learned to cook dinner for us.  I have a cookbook available from me with the dishes my lead females make in my stories.  If you are looking for a girl on the run from a murderer, check out HER SPIRIT WARRIOR or WHEN THE MUSIC FADES.  If you like a little mysticism and Indigenous Peoples legends, check out WHITE EAGLE LEGEND.  Each book has it’s own story told by the lead heroine through her eyes.  Let me tell you a story…

Two New Novels – Feb. 1, 2019

Coming soon from the imagination of Marcia Oster – two new novels.

In Love Off the Grid, Porter Northman wants a woman to live in his Montana cabin off the grid – no electricity and just the bare essentials. Nola Sutton answers the ad – and she and Porter find out they’re more than a little compatible.

In Love on a Cruise, successful author Nikki Wallace meets Chaz, a Native American, on an American riverboat cruise from Memphis to New Orleans, and then later again on an Alaska cruise. But will she end up with him – or will someone else capture her heart?
