Old Scandal Becomes Modern Novel For Ashland Writer
Earlier generations of American readers thrilled to the tales of brave locomotive engineers on the railroads, the airline pilots of their day. A Rogue Valley author hearkens back to that time, but with a twist: S.K. (Sue) DeMarinis wrote a book about a woman connected to the railroad. But only by marriage, and not for long.
How could we resist a book called The Station Master's Wife: A Scandalous Life Exposed? We couldn't. The story is set at and around the Ashland depot, just as the final spikes were driven completing the old mainline railroad up the West Coast, 1887. Sue DeMarinis visits to talk about her novel.
