Marilyn Kleiber

2017

Marilyn Kleiber, born in South Africa, but raised primarily in Canada, has been writing since childhood.

She is an instructor in writing skills, an author, and a mentor to a variety of other scribblers. Everything she teaches as an instructor, she has used in her own works.

Her studies of literature and the English language are ongoing, and even today she adds to her education regarding the skills and challenges of word-smithing. Her take on courses is that there is always something to learn from someone new.

She has written magazine and newspaper articles, newsletters, online blogs, and her first three fantasy/myth novels published, under the nom-de-plume of J. M. Tibbott. Since this is part of a series of seven novels, she is hard at work on novel #4.

She belongs to a number of writing groups, and was past committee member of the Elora Writers' Festival.

Marilyn claims if she could not write, she would lose the ability to breathe
