Author M. J. Scott (USA)

Marilyn studied education at Manchester College, earning her BS in Education, followed by her MA in Mass Communications at Norfolk State University. She completed all but her dissertation in the doctoral program of Education Administration at California Coast University.  A retired gifted students teacher who began her career working at Dr. Albert Schweitzer Elementary School in Anaheim, California and 20 years in education in the public school systems of two Virginia cities, Marilyn has also spent years with her own photography business and philanthropic work. In 2015 she became co-founder of The Writer’s Council, an organization serving to encourage aspiring writers to achieve their dreams to become published.  

Marilyn’s third book under the pen name M. J. Scott, Power Steering, is a series of vignette-style articles illuminating the power of intuitive feelings and insight. In her book, Marilyn makes the reader wonder how our lives would be different if we truly trusted a higher power to guide us. What would it be like to tune into a force that works for our benefit and well-being in a universe so complex that we feel our significance does not even register? Throughout the book, the author uses a car analogy to show what happens when we let higher power drive us on life’s journey: We stay behind the wheel, she shows, but we let “power steering” make our passage much less tiresome. The power steering fluid is intuition, a beautiful and subtle messaging from God. Our learning to recognize it and trust it allows us to make the choices in life that lead us to our most blessed destinations. Through a collection of poetic-narrative meditations and anecdotes in Power Steering, M. J. Scott rolls out the panorama of her own life’s enrichment when she lets intuition take the wheel.
