About Marian Jensen


Marian Jensen

big hole for websiteA transplant from Kentucky (Derby Town, USA), Marian began visiting the west on camping and skiing vacations where she found the wide open spaces a respite from her harried career as a college administrator. She and her family finally made the big move to Montana in the late 90's. Now, she wakes up each morning to meditate on a view of the mountain side, and spends her days immersed in the writerly life, regularly reminding herself that while writing might be for sissies, getting published is not.Trout fishing on the Big Hole River is her favorite place to be.





On writing

Writing is like hunting. There are some brutally cold afternoons with nothing in sight, only the wind and your heart. Then the moment when you bag something big, the entire process is intoxicating. - Kate Braverman
