Marilyn McFarlane

Marilyn McFarlane, raised in a devoutly religious family, always had an interest in the diversity of world faiths. During her journeys as an author and travel writer, Marilyn continued her education by exploring sacred sites—Hindu temples in India, European cathedrals, Buddhist shrines, neo-Pagan altars, mosques in Morocco, and many more.

With the firm belief that understanding others’ faiths can lead to tolerance, acceptance, and peace, and an equally firm belief in the power of story, Marilyn wrote Sacred Stories. A mother and grandmother, she lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband, two cats, and many books.
