I am an aspiring writer of fantasy books for kids and teens. This blog encompasses my thoughts on the writing life, movies, animation—whatever pops into my head (not always a good thing). I was a student at the Vermont College of Fine Arts and earned an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults. I have worked as an editor, a ghostwriter, a technical writer, a bulk foods stocker, a receptionist, and a babysitter.
I am a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). I brake for squirrels, geese, Stop signs, and small children on spindly legs pedaling bikes with training wheels. I often crochet and sometimes knit. People get tired of me flinging crocheted flowers their way. Perhaps I’ll fling one your way someday.

I’d weave one of your flung crocheted flowers into one of my arm knotted scarves. I ❤ Cabot Cheese.
Good! I think the combination is a winner. Thanks for stopping by!
Knitted! I meant knit…damn autotext. Sigh
Ha! Autotext keeps us amused. 😀

Marie, thank you for showing up on my blog “What’s your name again?” yesterday. That’s the magic on the cyberworld, meeting new writers, in this case through Jill Weatherholt.
My “bag” is memoir, but my husband is a children’s book writer. Tomorrow he’s exhibiting at the Amelia Island Book Festival. I’ll tag along – always like to hobnob with other writers even if it isn’t my genre.
Have a great weekend!
Marian, it was great meeting you. How cool that your husband writes books for kids! Yay! I had a great weekend! Hope you did the same!
Hi, again! Yes, we both attended the AIBF, wearing tee shirts with the imprint of his book cover, The Boy Who Grew Too Small.
Have a super week and thanks for posting on my blog last week.
You’re welcome! 😀
One thing WordPress could learn from Facebook: access to a LOVE button! Because LIKE is not enough for how I feel about a certain Kitty of Crime’s adventures!! Keep ’em coming!
Thank you, Louise! 😀 😁 Yes WordPress could learn a lot from Facebook. I wish the balloons that pop up on Facebook whenever you write Congratulations would pop up here! 🎈
Hi, L. Marie! This is a strange place to post this, but I don’t believe my email message from a few weeks ago reached you, and I don’t see another way to contact you. Here’s what I said:
Good morning, L. Marie,
As you know, I’m preparing to launch my memoir soon: Mennonite Daughter: The Story of a Plain Girl. After a 5-year “pregnancy,” the book birth day is in sight.
Would you like an advance reader copy of my book? If so, I would be thrilled to send you a copy, but I would need your mailing address.
No time pressure, I am doing final proofs in preparation for typesetting.
Let me know if you have any questions. 🙂
or just reply here. THANKS!
Marian, I will email you!
