Marci McGuinness is a southwestern Pennsylvania native. Her loves of Ohiopyle and the written word have led her to record local history, so that it is not lost in the "progress shuffle." The author has written and published over 20 regional books and magazines since 1981. She also served as Marketing Director, then, Managing Editor, at the prestigious Cornell Maritime Press/Tidewater Publishers in Centreville, Maryland. There she published books by dozens of authors and professors on Chesapeake Bay and Maritime topics. Today, McGuinness resides in Chalk Hill, Pennsylvania with her Jack Russell Terrier, Jake.
