Writing has been a passion for as long as I can remember. While the necessities of life mandated that I work in jobs that did not exactly fit my writing goals, I am finally at a place in my life where I can write 'till my heart is content.
​I enjoy writing research articles, short stories, and screenplays.


Marlene is a proud member of the
International Screenwriter's Association (ISA).
