A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a home-sickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

— Robert Frost

Words sustain or destroy us, comfort or isolate us; they offer an understanding of our humanity; they offer us a chance to see who we are, or who we would like to be.

We need words, we need stories and we need books.

In her books, Marnie explores the notions of myth, adventure, history, magic, and mystery. Her current works The Dark Point & E.I. are for children and young adults, yet these tales connect to the child in all of us.
