Marta C. Weeks BIO


How it started: In 1999, Marta, almost paralyzed by fear, wrote a short story about a being without a soul. The short story developed into the first few chapters of a book, and in 2000, at a writer’s conference, Marta submitted them to the late Leonard Bishop, a novelist and writing teacher. Bishop wrote a three-page letter to Marta, which she treasures, that began: “Thank you for submitting your manuscript to me. Some of it is excellent, and some of it gave me a difficult time.” Those pages by Bishop were full suggestions and some praise: “Nowhere in the manuscript can I really fault the prose.” Bishop inspired Marta to continue writing and, she hoped, would be her mentor, but he died before she completed the first draft. 

An avid reader of anthropology, history, and supernatural context, after a 30-year career, the last twenty as Research Analyst, Marta retired. For a while, she freelanced for technical publications and for CBS Sacramento. Was a poetry finalist at the San Francisco 2012 writers’ conference. Published: The Sylph’s Tale, a novella, and the screenplay adaptation. See comments from the Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting

Since early childhood, books are Marta’s best friends. Limited by polio, reading became one of her favorite escape. Up in the attic of her grandparent’s store, amid rows of stored books, by a small barred window under a light bulb strung from the ceiling, she immersed herself in mysteries, history, or damsels in distress who overcame their dilemmas.

Work in progress includes a book of poetry, a second screenplay, several short stories, and four novellas: Of Passion’s Thorns, a tale of success inspired by obstacles and bigotry; Sweet Dreams My Love, the struggle of a family from addiction to recovery; Judy Malone, a gripping story about infidelity.

Marta is happily married and lives in northern California with her husband, an avid reader, supports her writing, and is a former RR Engineer.

Thank you for liking my bio, I sincerely appreciate it.
One of my favorite things is research, not just because for twenty years of my life I was a Research Analyst but because since I was a child, crippled by polio, reading gave me wings.
It is taking me a long time to write ELEMENTALS -The Series because although fiction it is is based on real facts. Right now I am working on finishing Book One, Ayekah the Damned that starts in prehistoric times and goes into the ancient Mayan evolution of culture that is evident in the Mayan amazing knowledge in Astronomy, Astrology Mathematics, and much more.
For more on the series click on ELEMENTALS - The Series at:
