About Me

Hi there, I'm Marcia.

Thanks for visiting.  I'm beyond thrilled you're here!

A bit About Me:

I believe we are the Masters of our destiny. There are no failures in this journey and a life without love and compassion is a brutal lack of imagination.  

Latina. Raised catholic but no longer a follower. Immigrant. Aries. Jersey girl by way of Rio. U2 fan. Scared of heights. Lover of books. Excessive Coffee Drinker.  Obsessive Thinker.

I hope you stick around and join me on this journey of random adventures...

"I believe that stories are incredibly important, possibly in ways we don't understand, in allowing us to make sense of our lives, in allowing us to escape our lives, in giving us empathy and in creating the world that we live in."    Neil Gaiman

Some Fun Facts:
I started a local Book Club in 2017 and we now have 40 members (click on Book Club to read more about it).  We meet once a month to talk about the book we just read, drink some wine (or not) and meet new people. 

I love to play scrabble and my husband and I have an on-going score board of our games.

I have a dog named Maggie.  She is very photogenic so you'll see her in a lot of my photos.

Review Policy:
I only accept review requests with the understanding that you will provide a free physical copy of your book to be reviewed.  If I agree to review your book, I will clearly state that I was given the book in exchange for an honest review.  I will then post the review on this blog, Goodreads, Amazon and social media (Instagram/Twitter). 
I don't post reviews below 3 stars, so in the event that I don't enjoy your book, I won't post a review.
