Hello! My name is Marcia Gage. I have spent most of my life surrounded by books. Subsequently, I learned at an early age to love both reading and writing.
In my professional life I have worked in sales and retention, fundraising, training and management for arts, political, environmental organizations and for online universities. In all my positions I have experience in writing scripts, ads, training manuals and, of course, emails and letters to clients, students and donors.
I have an MS in Psychology and I am also a Master Herbalist. Throughout my studies in psychology I have written a number of papers focusing on eating disorders, health and wellness and alternative medicine.
Other interests include travel and experiencing different cultures, music, reading, food, gardening, politics and baseball. I enjoy incorporating my knowledge of classical music, herbalism, gardening, politics, travel and Psychology into my writing.
I also have experience designing and writing for websites and product pages. I have participated in online product, restaurant, hotel and travel reviews.
I am the author of three books: Buried Love: A Hoarder's Journey, Soulmate Hunting After 40: The Mature Guide to Finding and Keeping Love and Happiness and the revised version for all adults, Soulmate Hunting: Beyond Clubbing: The Mature Guide to Finding and Keeping Love and Happiness. I also have a short story, The Asian Lady available on Amazon.
I am the mother of four adult sons and five grandchildren and three step grandchildren. For several years, I have lived with my husband in a downtown high-rise in Minneapolis we love urban living and all it has to offer.
My husband and I are currently living in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and co-authoring a blog about our experience. “Mexico Bound Boomers: Paupers in Paradise.
I believe that good writing consists of accuracy, creativity and in many cases, a sense of humor. My goal is to inform, inspire and entertain my audience.
