Spending her formative years in South Florida, the only child of New York expatriates with a penchant for the Bohemian lifestyle, Marcia’s best friend was a good book.
In 2000 Marcia began to pursue her dream of writing. Having written two satires about the upscale Scottsdale crowd, she then took a different direction and completed two more books. The third, PAPER CHILDREN, is a family saga based on her grandmother’s letters from her family in Poland before and after World War Two. Through translations and personal recollections Marcia has crafted a powerful immigrant’s story of determination and passion. It has been a finalist for three national prizes and a Top 10 Book of the Year for 2010 by Book Cheerleader.
STRESSED IN SCOTTSDALE expands her satirical series about Jean Rubin into the arena of politics and the environment. With her unique eye she pokes fun at the denizens of an upscale community while tackling serious issues of corruption and air quality. The novel was awarded first prize for Humor/ Satire from the Arizona Publishing Association. It was also chosen as a "Book for Better Living" by the Living Now Book Awards.
THE BLIND EYE-- A Sephardic Journey, a sweeping historical novel set in the 15th and 20th centuries, is a heart-wrenching story dealing with the survival of the Sephardic Jews during the Spanish Inquisition and a contemporary Cuban woman. Both PAPER CHILDREN and THE BLIND EYE required extensive research and travel to Poland, Spain and Portugal.
