About Marilyn Wright Dayton
Marilyn was born Marilyn Kay Wright in Bath, New York. From a young age, it was obvious that she had a great deal of imagination. She has been writing all of her life, from the time she could hold a pencil. Her life and career focused on the world of advertising in many roles. She was one of the originators of some of the more unique marketing vehicles in the nation over many years.

As an innovator in the new world of women and leadership, she has proven to create peak performances in startups, small business and non-profits. From the beginning of her career at the age of 12 as a radio quiz kid, she has been both in front of the camera and behind the camera as a fashion model, radio and TV show host and program producer. She holds degrees in marketing and business as well as in journalism. Over the past several decades, she has also been a newspaper reporter, creative writer, ad director, entrepreneur, a consultant, a trainer and an authority in the areas of creative marketing and top-notch business performance. She built an ad agency in the 80s, called Pilgrim Associates, located in Rochester, NY, closing it after 12 years. During those years, her name reflected a marriage, Marilyn Wright-Schulz. Today, her name reflects another marriage that ended in 2003.

She is retired today, living with her family in Mystic, CT. Her marketing business has closed, but the website is still live with many marketing tip articles, available on the  website. She also had a television show for several years in CT, called "From This Corner TV", with a website available, where you can see her hour-long programs. She has also retired from the show to concentrate on her family and other interests.

Her first loves have continued to be creative writing and art. She brings that to her research for a book which holds the many secrets and stories of her Wright lineage, called "Our Roots Run Deep", a genealogy book on the Wright family.

Her first published book is a book of short stories which she had written over many decades, called "Beyond, Tales of Life, Mystery and Murder." She also writes an internet blog called "From Glam 2 Gram", which is now available as a book called "RefleXions", available on Amazon. These blogs/chapters are non-fictional, biographical stories from her life, family and career. You can read her blog at www.FromGlam2Gram.com.

She also has planned several murder mysteries, the Hightower Mysteries. The first one to be available in early 2021 is "Murder on the Mesa", the second for late 2021 is "The Faces of Murder." She also has planned three more to be published in 2022 and 2023, called "Murder on Trial""A Question of Murder", and "Murder on High""Weezie" Hightower, who leads the investigations, is a retired P.I. who lives in a nursing home, but is still a feisty Irish gal of 5 feet "and 1/8 inch". She and her three other feisty gals, Bitsy, Millie and Crip, love to solve crimes, and keep very busy in the mystery series. You can read more about them on the Books page on this website.
