Red Wheelbarrow Writers  is a loose association of Northwest writers in all genres who get together to celebrate each other's creative endeavors, commiserate each other's setbacks, and drink wine. In September we realized a long-held dream: to publish our first book, a memoir anthology. Over 30 writers have contributed their unique stories. Marian Exall revisits a formative year in the South of France. Find out how to secure your copy at our website.

Sarah McKinney, competent professional ..... damaged child


Marian Exall has crafted a character forged in the crucible of childhood abuse. Sarah's sophisticated exterior - love those Jimmy Choos! - hides a painful history. She excels at academics; relationships are harder. But in A Slippery Slope, Sarah falls in love and is drawn into a criminal intrigue that threatens her ordered existence.

Now, in A Dangerous Descent, Sarah searches for a missing woman whose troubled past parallels her own.​​
