Marileta Hunsford Marileta Hunsford Marileta Hunsford is a librarian for a county library in central Indiana. She has been writing poetry and stories since she was in elementary school and her love of writing motivated her to get her B.A, in English. She completed her masters at IUPUI. "Writing is my escape and safety valve. It's kept me from despairing and helped me focus my eyes on the peace at the end of a struggle. If I didn't write I would probably be in an asylum right now.I can take out real-life frustrations on fictional characters and find courage by giving my protagonists the strength I long for."
