HOPE IRVIN MARSTON

AUTHOR OF CHILDREN'S BOOKS


Welcome!  I am glad you stopped by.  I'm Hope Marston, retired junior high teacher and library media specialist.  I live in Black River, New York, near Fort Drum and the Thousand Islands, with my husband Arthur and Heidi, our happy Bernese Mountain dog.

Since 1975 I have written a child's devotional book, a handful of photographic essays on large machinery, a junior biography, a half dozen picture books about wild animals, an inspirational romance and a local history.

I hope you will enjoy browsing my pages to get acquainted with me and my books.  Simply click on any of the links to the left to begin your adventure.

I'd love to hear from you.  Drop me a line using the form on the Contact Information page.

I am excited to be a guest blogger on Darcyís blog.  Her posts go out to a mailing list of about 2500; in addition, the site gets over 1000 hits/day.

Read about how I got 57 reviews on Amazon.

Tracy Kauffman Interviews
Hope Irvin Marston


Tracy Kauffman is a Christian author who specializes
in Children's and Young Adult Books.
  She interviewed Hope on October 30, 2012.
Read this fascinating interview here.


My book Sackets Harbor Powder Monkey: The War of 1812 was published in July 2012.

Itís 1811 and 11-year-old Rankin McMullin is ready for action.  He's joined the warship Oneida to fight the British and end the laws that have forced New York farmers to become smugglers.  As a powder boy, his job is to carry gunpowder to the carronades.  When the shooting begins, the battle is seen through Rankin's eyes.  The unique way it's fought and the unusual way it ends surprises both sides.

Read more about this new book on my Sackets Harbor Powder Monkey page.


Photo from the War of 1812 Symposium at
The Freight House in Ogdensburg on April 26, 2014.

This year I was invited to come and sell my book,
Sackets Harbor Powder Monkey.
It was my third year to attend.

Knowing the building is cold, I dressed in layers.
It was a busy day with seven informative presentations.

 I was impressed by this War of 1812 quilt.
 The man in the center is Major General Isaac Brock,
a key British officer during the early phases of the War of 1812.
