Marie Force
Marie Force Born in Newport, Rhode Island, I grew up in neighboring Middletown with parents who lived to be on the water. In fact, that's the Newport Bridge gracing the banner on my website. While running his aviation repair business with my mother as his bookkeeper, my father restored a progression of wooden powerboats that graduated over the years from 22 to 36 feet. Today, the boat is 36 feet and made of fiberglass, it has a shower, hot water, a microwave, and a T.V. — all things we never dreamed of having as kids — but the boat has gotten a bit more crowded than it used to be, and Dad is still at the helm.
      After graduating from Middletown High School in 1984, I attended the University of Rhode Island where I double majored in journalism and political science. I graduated in 1988 and went to work for a small community newspaper — the writing equivalent of boot camp. We worked like dogs for almost no money, but we had a lot of fun and learned so much about writing, editing and life.
