Marcia Finical won the first annual Bywater Prize for Fiction for her first novel, Last Chance at the Lost And Found, and the 2009 Golden Crown Literary Society “Goldie” for best General Dramatic Fiction.

Originally from Seattle, she has worked in a fish cannery, as a letter carrier, made collection calls, worked at a Stop and Rob, and currently is employed as an accountant. A frustrated gardener, Marcia does her best to keep her xeric plants alive at her home in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she lives with her three dogs and two cats. She thanks Anita Bryant for pushing her out of the closet 35 years ago.
