Praise For My Books

  • Louis at Book Bliss

    “If Marchini releases a full length novel I’ll definitely be buying it as I think it will be a read to rival Helen Fielding.”

  • The Literate Mother

    “I really enjoyed reading this middle grade novel… My favorite line (because it’s probably one I can really relate to) is, ‘Cindy’s left ear is probably cooler than my entire body ever will be.’”

    Effie at the Wedding is not just for the YA crowd, but also for anyone who has ever wallowed in self-pity, and then had to discover a reason to get off the pot.”

    “The best thing about Hot Ticket, however, is the plot. It’s a mystery concerned with exactly the kinds of things that its audience cares about. It explores ideas of popularity and exclusion, of peer influence and self-esteem, and does it in a way that can’t help but hold the reader’s attention.”

    “I also think the concept of the tickets is a stroke of genius. There have been a lot of stories about popularity written for this age group, but the idea of an actual ticketing system is a clever – and cruel – way to highlight who is hot and who is not. The ticketing system gave the author a lot of interesting scenarios to play with, and brought new life to an often overused topic.”
