Marcus releases ‘Good Grief’

Ruth Marcus, a local author, poet and former Sequim Gazette columnist, announced last week the publication of “Good Grief: 58 Ways to Manage Your Life.”

This collection of essays was selected from her monthly columns over the course of seven years as a columnist with the Sequim Gazette and Living on the Peninsula.

The publication, Marcus said, “energizes, inspires, and provides tips to manage your life during challenging times — from grief to living with uncertainty, from issues of trust and forgiveness to removing clutter and letting go, there is something for everyone in this book.”

The book is available locally at Port Book & News and online at WideAwakePublishing.com, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Marcus’ poetry has been published in the 2017 WA129 Poets of Washington Anthology, Cirque Journal (Vol. 8 and 10), Tide Pools, Frog Pond Journal, Modern Haiku and several other poetry anthologies.

In addition to her interest in writing, Marcus has been a member of Soroptimist International and the League of Women Voters. She has also been a grief counselor with Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County.

She hosts writing groups and assists writers in self-publishing. Contact her at WideAwakePublishing.com.
