Marian Gold

 

Born in London in 1934, evacuated to the country during the Second World War, Marian left school at 14, and originally trained as a secretary. She married in 1954, had three children, and took an A-level in English in the early 1970s. In 1979,she took a BA in Contemporary Studies at University of Hertfordshire majoring in English Literature. During this time she helped to run an Educational Guidance Centre.

After attending a one-year Introductory Counselling Course, she began an MA much of which consisted of the study of First World War literature. This aroused Marian's interest especially after a trip to the battlefields of Northern France, and a visit to a war museum.

The heroism of an entire generation of young men who had patriotically fought and died made her wonder about what role the women played in the Great War. This informed Marian's approach to her MA thesis on "Literature in Crisis" which she then reshaped into her book, Wartime is Your Time.

The book generated so much interest that Marian decided to publish. The first print run sold out, making this second edition necessary.

Marian has just completed her second book, a work of fiction entitled Campo di Fiore, (Field of Flowers).

Marian lives in London with her husband Conrad and divides her time between her children ,grandchildren and part time job as medical secretary to a consultant paediatrician.
