Lucy's Story

So I'm actually working on a WWII story also about the Ritter family from 1940 to 1945 and how all of the Ritter boys were drafted into the war. It's an amazing story of survival and will be told from the view of their little sister Lucy. It is not going to be first person, because I need to add in views of the Ritter boys as well, especially one who ended up in a concentration camp during 1944. I'm still working on the research for this story, but I'm sure once I get it all together, it's going to sound amazing :)
Take care! Marie

Finally Posting ;)

Okay everyone, please forgive me for nothing makes me feel more stupid than a blog site lol

I'm not very good at figuring certain things out online, blogs especially, but I know I need to do this in order to get the word about my book out :) and it's just nice to be able to write about stuff lol

So, I need reviews!

I need those of you that have actually purchased my book to give me a review.... even if it's a bad one. Preferably a good one honestly, but a review none the less. I poured a lot of myself into this book, and even though I know it's not for everyone it is a book I find that a lot of people would enjoy. It has suspense, mystery, and an obsessive love that some of us can relate to.

It has been my lifelong dream to be a writer, hell... ask anybody who's known me since I was a kid. I was writing short stories even then hoping that in the future I would end up being a best-selling author. I have more ideas but due to my current illness and pregnancy situations I have not been able to put time into them like I need. I've even decided to take a break from school because every day has been so unpredictable. It's been the worst feeling ever, but it would bring me joy and happiness to know that people are reading my book and actually enjoying it. Give it a try, it's only 2.99 anyway :) if it's terrible you can punch me.... in the arm.... softly...... ;)

I do hope everybody has a good Friday and if there ended up being enough demand I'd begin working on the 2nd one more quickly lol

After all, the first one will leave you hanging ;) So give it a read and let me know what you think. :) I would really appreciate it.

Thanks :) Marie

Hi! I'm Marie.

Welcome to my blog!

I'm a proud mother and wife. I've spent my life writing and have dreamed of being published my entire life. I love good books, good movies, and life. I appreciate beauty for what it is and love being surrounded by it. My children define me as a person and have made me stronger over the years. Everything I do is for them and their future. I adore history and love incorporating it into my stories. I believe we learn from our history and if we can learn from our mistakes we can learn not to repeat them.

I want to be Indiana Jones.

I want to travel and see the world and write about everything I encounter. I want to share these experiences with my family and show my children all there is to appreciate in the world. I choose to smile in the face of pessimism and won't let negative attitudes bring me down. I have faith in myself and others because I know we are all capable of doing anything as long as we put our minds to it. Overall, I want to give my children the best life I can and show them that I have what it takes to make anything possible.
