Search - List of Books by Marion Roach

Marion Roach is a contemporary non-fiction writer whose work spans many fields of research.

Her first book, Another Name for Madness, is a memoir of dealing with her mother's Alzheimer's and the family problems that arose because of it. She is also the coauthor of Dead Reckoning: The New Science of Catching Killers with Michael Baden, MD.

Her most recent book, The Roots of Desire: The Myth, Meaning, and Sexual Power of Red Hair (2005) is a non-fiction piece about the history and oddities of red heads and their reactions from society.

Along with her books, Roach's writing has also been published in the New York Times Magazine, Vogue, Good Housekeeping, Discover, Prevention, and Newsday. She also works as a professor of a memoir course at the Arts Center of the Capital Region, New York; and works as a commentator on National Public Radio on the show "All Things Considered." She is currently heard on Martha Stewart Living Radio Sirius 112 with her spot called "The Naturalist's Datebook". Daily, Marion has facts, websites, books, poems and more concerning nature and Naturalists. She starts each piece with the how many days of the year have elapsed since New Years, and quotes how many days since the new moon. Ms. Roach closes each Datebook with the phrase "And that's it for the Naturalist's Datebook...And Remember: Look around, write it down, and keep your eye on nature".

She will debut her new children's show this September on MSL Radio.

Marion Roach lives in upstate New York with her husband, Albany Times Union Editor Rex Smith, and daughter.
