I love reading, technology, photography, roller skating, Twitter and being creative.
My writing career began in 2002 with the publication of Shorty In Da House, a monthly newsletter I published for friends and family for eight years before turning it into a blog.
In 2008, I left my job and 12-year career in Human Resources to pursue my passion of writing, and have not turned back. I’ve published over 100 articles in print and online publications; 3100+ blog posts; and seven books. My three proudest writing accomplishments are my interview with Dr. Maya Angelou; being published in Forbes; and publishing 62 Blog Posts to Overcome Blogger’s Block book and companion guide.
I’ve presented at local and national conferences, including New Media Expo, Blogging While Brown and Social Media Chicago.
Currently, I’m researching Chicago roller skating history with the goal of being the first person to publish a book on this topic before the end of this year.

Why I Started Marcie Writes
I started Marcie Writes for three reasons:
- To promote my published works;
- To share my mistakes, successes and experiences to make the journey of other freelance writers, bloggers and independent publishers easier; and
- To use my platform to elevate and promote others.
However, it has grown to include
- Resources and opportunities;
- Book reviews and interviews; and
- Subjects that interest and frustrate me.
You are welcome to share articles on writing, freelance writing, blogging, social media, speaking or book publishing. Read the guest posting guidelines.
