Praise For My Books

  • Michelle Scott, 21st Century Writer

    Juliet (the main character) has spunk in spades. She may have tunnel vision when it comes to something that she wants, but she isn’t afraid to go for it… Also, even though things tend not to turn out the way she intended, Juliet has a good heart at the core.

    “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.”

    An indie short story worth checking out

    The fact that a 6,000 word story has a flipping subplot should be an indication that Marchini has a knack for story-telling.

    I hope this is the first of many forays that Marchini takes into Brig’s life. I would happily read an entire novel set in the music-controlled world she lives in.

    “I felt like I could relate to the middle school need in this book to fit in and to have your successes highlighted. I can also relate to how uncomfortable and sad it can be when you feel like you aren’t fitting in.”

    “If you are having a down day and need a pick me up, take a few minutes and read Effie at the Wedding.”
