Marquise Publishing was founded on February 3, 2003 and turns 11years old today. I decided to start my publishing company on this day for a very significant reason. February 3, 1980 was the day my dad lost his battle with cancer. I wanted to honor his memory by making the worst day of my life the start of my lifelong dream. When I think of this day, it is still bitter sweet, but I know my dad is proud of me. Rest in heaven Clarence Evans 12/28/31-02/03/80.
