Marsha Barrett - Information About Author

First and foremost, Marsha Barrett wanted to write a book about an animal that kids misunderstand and decided the much-maligned slug was perfect. The slug is always thought of in a negative light whereas the snail has a different image. It is her hope this book will educate kids on the two cousins.

Mrs. Barrett holds a bachelor of arts degree in speech pathology and audiology from Kansas State University and a masters in special education from the University of Kansas, as well as certification in education policy and administration. She spent thirty-three years in education, including eight years at the Kansas State School for the Deaf, twenty years as a public school administrator, and five years as a high school principal. She has been a member of the National Association of Secondary School Principals, Kansas State High School Activities Association, Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, and Phi Delta Kappa, among others.

When not working with children, Mrs. Barrett finds time for golf, needlepoint, travel, and gardening. Married for almost forty years to husband Mark C. Barrett, they share two children, Wendy England and Rustin Barrett. Sammy Snail and His Cousin, Sedgwick Slug is her first published children's book.
