Child model. International archery champion. Beauty pageant queen. Detroit rock band promoter. Ann Marston accomplished all of these things, and more, during her all-too-short life.
In Shooting Star: The Amazing Life of Ann Marston, author Alana Paluszewski tells the story of this former Miss Michigan from Wyandotte who refused to allow debilitating diabetes to get in the way of her goals. Paluszewski uses Ann's personal diaries, family albums, interviews and other primary research to share Ann's untold biography.
Whether you remember her or not, you cannot help but be touched and inspired by the story of Ann Marston, whose star shone briefly on the national stage, then was gone.
