I am a mother of two lovely daughters. I earned a Masters degree in Psychology and a certificate in Diversity Management from Cleveland State University.
I started Marquise Publishing February 3, 2003 to fulfill a dream of becoming a published author. I wrote my first book about a lonely hat at the age of six. My current book I Know How to Lose Weight, So Why Haven’t I, is a self help book about my own personal experience with yo-yo dieting and weight loss. I am a fan of classic Hip Hop and write poems to satisfy my inner MC. My second published book This is My Brain on Emotion, is a collection of poems I have written from age fourteen to the present. I will released my first children’s book Rich Man’s Song in 2017.
In January 2013 I decided to relaunch Marquise Publishing and plan to publish other authors. My focus is on providing a good home for great books from several genres including non- fiction, children’s literature, fiction, and poetry. I want Marquise Publishing to be the champion of the independent thinker, the endless dreamer, and the creative nonconformist. My challenge is to overcome my shyness and my awkwardness in social situations to be a good ambassador for my brand. This blog is my way of putting myself out there and sharing my thoughts, triumphs, and missteps in my journey to build a successful small publishing company
