Growing Up with Pigs Cover Image

About the Author: Harol Marshall

I grew up in the "Place Beyond the Pines," Schenectady, NY, which I write about in my short story anthology, "Growing Up With Pigs." My father was Deputy Chief of Police in my hometown, which no doubt explains my interest in writing my humorous detective novels, "Holy Death" and "Holy Mole Murder."

I began my career as a novelist after twenty years in academia where I conducted field research for my PhD in the state of Tlaxcala in central Mexico, the setting for my Anna Merino series, "A Corpse for Cuamantla," "A Corpse for the Matadora," and "A Corpse for Cortez"(due out in 2013). I also coordinated a research program between my university and the NC Zoo, which was the inspiration for my Samantha Clark mysteries, "Adieu at the Zoo," and "Zoo Brew-ha-ha" (due out in 2013). My first political thriller, "The Shadow Cabinet" appeared in December 2012 to four and five star reviews.

When not writing, I enjoy reading, cooking, and dancing (swing and ballroom) in Greensboro, North Carolina. For more information, visit my website at:, or meet me on

Harol Marshall loves a good story and she tells them well in Growing Up With Pigs, a collection of twenty-two humorous and heart-warming stories about growing up in the 1950's that includes a vivid portrait of life on a small family farm. A novelist with two mystery series to her credit, Ms. Marshall's ability to bring characters to life through dialog is never more apparent than in the short stories contained here.
