Marianne Aweagon Broyles spent her early childhood in Boston and Boothbay Harbor, Maine, and grew up in Tennessee. An enrolled member of the Cherokee Nation, she graduated from Emory University, where she studied creative writing with Frank Manley. She lives in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, and works as a psychiatric nurse in Albuquerque. The Red Window is her first book.
Marianne Aweagon Broyles' poems have both depth and freshness... The Red Window is a first collection that shows heart, sophistication, and metaphoric connection. It does the true work of poetry. - Miriam Sagan
