The love of the written word is a gift to the soul

About me

I believe I was born with a passion for writing. At the age of five, I wrote poetry on paper napkins and frustrated my mother by filling my school notebooks with stories. When I was in my early 20s and a mother of three, my night school, literature professor encouraged me to pursue a writing career. I had several magazine articles and essays published before moving across country when I had to put my writing on the back burner while working and raising a family. When we returned back East and I asked my husband where my box of writing was, the one that had everything I had ever written or published, he said he thought it was just old papers and he...THREW IT OUT!! The first thing people ask me when I share that story, is...and you're still married? Yes, for 49 yrs. But I was so devastated at the time that a door to my writer's brain slammed shut and I couldn't write another thing for thirty years. Then, from nowhere, the muse was awoken and spewed forth book after book, after book, after book. Now, I can't get the muse to shut up, so the books keep coming,  from my imagination that produces, sometimes sweet and heartwarming stories, sometimes dark and twisted ones, sometimes romantic stories, sometimes supernatural thrillers. But to balance it off, I love writing stories for children. I have many grandchildren and great-grandchildren and the wonderment in their eyes when they read or hear my stories is the only accolade I will ever need.

I loved the way that the author incorporated beloved characters from ..., August 4, 2017

By Marjorie Savoie

This review is from: FIFTY-ONE SHADES OF GREEN or THE EMERALD INN-BEHIND CLOSED DOORS (Paperback)

Wow! What a roller coaster ride! I began reading this book immediately after finishing "Fifty Shades of Green", because I was absolutely hooked on the characters and the story line. I loved the way that the author incorporated beloved characters from the first book, yet did it in such a way that someone could pick up this book and understand it immediately without having read the first book. The unexpected twists that the author takes in the last couple of chapters is breathtaking! This book is a quick read, and a wonderful adventure, with a very satisfying ending. Can't wait to read more from this author!

A shot of emotional caffeine, just when I needed it most!, August 3, 2017

By Marjorie Savoie

This review is from: Fifty Shades of Green or Coffeehouse Confessions of the Uncommon Joe (Paperback)

This book came into my hands at the perfect moment, when I was recovering from surgery. Oh my gosh, I really needed this! It felt as if I had been transported to a warm, welcoming coffee shop, surrounded by new and interesting friends...a few of whom had some very intriguing skeletons in their closets! I loved all the unexpected twists and turns, and the ending could not have been more satisfying! One thing I loved about this book is the way each chapter is a story within a story. It's one of those books that you don't really want to put down, but the chapters are written in such a way that even the busiest person with only a few minutes to read each day could finish a chapter at a time quickly, and really enjoy it!
