Marra begins with the birth of self and traces the development of her thoughts and feelings as she experiences love, life, and a full range of emotions during her adolescence and into her adulthood. She exasperates the development of self through profound images that speak to the very heart of your soul. She speaks of family, upbringing, dreams, and love. She speaks of the foundation of emotions that she associates with every aspect of her living. She questions learned truths and visits the very nature of her being. Marra finds herself in her writings and, through her loving, accepts the woman she is today.

About the Author

I started writing when I was fourteen years old. I always loved to write. I always loved to read. I used to free write in high school when I was in class. I remember when I was growing up, that I used to write cards for my friends to give to their boyfriends. I always had pen pals. I absolutely love to write cards. It is one of the many joys in my life. My love for words was driven by my ability to capture sentiment in a way that cast vivid imagery into my world. I grew up working in my family-owned construction company. I still work there today. I love my job. Every day. I am the lucky mother of one wonderful son, who is the light of my life. At age thirty-eight, I created a bucket list. One of the top five items on the list was to publish my book. I was born and raised in Vaughan, Ontario. This is my home, where I still reside.
