Jackson Parish Library hosts book signing of author with local roots

Marguerite Martin Gray, who has family roots in Jackson Parish was the guest of honor at the Jackson Parish Library this past Saturday for a book signing of Wait For Me, the fifth historical Christian fiction book of her Revolutionary Faith Series . The resident of Gibsland, LA is a relation to the late Flossie Edmonds and the Martin family in Jonesboro. 

Wait For Me is the final book in the series that discovers the destiny of the Lestarjette family in Charles Town, SC during the years of 1775-1780 as they hope and wait upon deliverance from a world under siege during the Revolutionary War. Additional title in the series are Hold Me Close, Surround Me, Bring Me Near and Draw Me to Your Side

Marguerite enjoys the study of history, especially when combined with fiction. An avid traveler and reader, she teaches French and Spanish and has degrees in French, Spanish, and Journalism from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas and a MA in English from Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene. She has two grown children.

“I got the inspiration to write this series from my love of reading about this period in history as a young child,” said Gray when asked what led her to write her series.

Gray’s collection of books can be purchased through BookBub, Facebook, Amazon and Goodreads and she can be followed at: margueritemartingray.blog
