Marquessa is a storyteller.

A voracious reader at an early age, she discovered that the pages of a novel could be a sweet escape into exciting worlds beyond her own. Little House on The Prairie, Nancy Drew and Sweet Valley High were just a few of her favorite books growing up. It was only when she fell in love with “I Know Why The Caged Birds” that she realized just how hungry she was for characters who looked more like her and narratives closer to what she could relate.

She quickly realized that she had the power to write the kinds of characters she wanted to see more of, like the characters in “How The Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents“, “Coffee Will Make You Black” and “The Joy Luck Club” and many others books that influenced her preference for novels with more of a cultural component.

Right now, Marquessa’s goals are three-fold:

Her primary goal is to write for the JOY of it. Her (secret) childhood dream of becoming a famous and revered published author has morphed into simply wanting readers to ENJOY the work she chooses to share with them.

Marquessa’s second goal is to cater to women who love seeing a little bit of themselves in the characters and stories she pens, being a voice for characters who happen to look like her within stories that are light & fluffy, dark and emotional, romantic and sexy and sometimes even inspirational.

Lastly, Marquessa is committed to challenging her writing and personal life boundaries – more to come on a little passion project she is working on.

When she is not trying to complete an evergreen unending list of  to-do lists, Marquessa can be found hiding away from the world, ideally curled up on her couch with her laptop, chilling to one of her 70’s or 80’s playlists with a bowlful of M&M and brainstorming the next cliffhanger she can come up with.

Marquessa is currently working on overcoming her current writer’s block and being indecisiveness about what project to start and finalize so if you would like to keep up with her updates, sign up for her newsletter here.

  2. Hi Marquessa,

    Nearly two years ago, when you were still hosting your Song Lyrics Sunday, I submitted a story in response called “The Demon in the Mask.” I just wanted to thank you because a much more polished version is being published in late September/early October by Cloaked Press in an anthology called “Fall into Fantasy 2019:” https://poweredbyrobots.com/2019/09/11/my-short-story-the-demon-in-the-mask-will-appear-in-the-cloaked-press-anthology-fall-into-fantasy-2019/

    I thought you’d like to know that at least one story you inspired went on to see a reality within the pages of a book. I appreciate what you did for a lot of us when we participated in your challenges.
