About Marion Balyszak
A former non-profit administrator, with a dual degree in history and anthropology, and a minor in museum studies, Marion Balyszak decided to pursue a new chapter after years of writing grants, research reports, long range plans, and outreach materials.
Emma Prince Kaua‘i Mysteries were inspired by extended time spent on Kaua‘i since 2010, a passion for history—and mysteries with a twist of magical realism. A Telling of Ancestors and Waking the Sleeping Giant are the first two books in the series, and she is currently completing a third book, Beneath Still Waters, to be released in 2021.
Marion and her husband Jim are the parents of two grown children, and divide their time between the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York and Princeville, Hawai‘i.
