About Marlene

marlene-home-199x300I have been a writer ever since we produced a newsletter for our parents at Girl Scout camp. I was heady with the sight of my words on the printed page, and immediately began writing a monthly newspaper for several of my friends. In that low-tech time of my life, I hand lettered and illustrated each issue with colored pencils, then carefully copied it four or five times before spending most of my allowance on postage. Sadly, no copies of that work exist today, but the following summer I wrote two poems for our camp newsletter, and I still have those somewhere. I’ve been writing ever since.
