A native of Kingston, Jamaica, Marlene immigrated to Ontario, Canada at age ten.
She studied humanities, women studies, vocal jazz at York University in Toronto, and graduated with a degree in Psychology. She enjoys interacting with people, listening to their life stories, "the forever student", always learning and sharing. She is also a graduate of The University of Windsor, with a second degree in Education.
An accomplished singer, songwriter and voice trainer, Marlene has never been able to resist the allure of storytelling and self expression through written word and music. She began writing stories, plays, poetry and songs at the tender age of eight.
She resides in Brampton, Ontario, and is currently working as an elementary school teacher.
