    1. One of these days, I will get around to writing a proper bio For the moment, all you need to know about me is that I was born in the Bronx and that created everything that I am.My two novels, Coffee with Thunderbolts and A Star Rose in Cerami, are urban metaphysical novels, but you could also designate them as urban fantasy paranormal or visionary fiction with a dash of chick and a side of boomer lit My final novel, Silver Hooves in the Darkness, is a Young Adult Equine Fantasy very genre busting.My travel memoir, Full Tank No Damage Three on a Sicilian Odyssey, documents my trip to Sicily with my husband and my mother in 2010 The story appeals to everyone, but especially those of the boomer generation, who clearly can see the ending of the road and the meaning of life as a journey.I am not formally following a writing or voice acting career at the moment I closed down my business back in 2014 when I orginally left Good Reads However, my books are available for free reading on Wattpad at wattpad user MGPetrinoI am back on Good Reads because I wanted to continue to participate in the Science Fiction Microstory Contest that began on Linkedin and is now on Good Reads The contest is monthly and you can read my flash fiction entries there when I participate group show

    2. The book begins with Elena fleeing her overbearing mother who has spent her life filling her only child with self doubts and regrets. Right away, we see how broken Elena is and hope that her aunt, Rosemarian, can put her together. Then we meet the aunt and lose all hope! As eccentric as her name, Rosemarian uses that eccentricity to hide a life overshadowed by regular panic attacks. The one thing that keeps her going is that her dead husband believed in her.They come across a Mayan spell which w [...]

    3. Reminiscent ofThe Way of the Peaceful Warriorthis book delves into the world of the metaphysical in the context of conversations between a young woman and her Aunt over coffee. Mayan 2012 predictions, ghosts, and sixth senses set the tone for this original and interseting tale.

    4. Note: Book provided by Author for review.This book I had some trouble with. I am not a fan of the cover. It would not draw me in at all. I'm glad I stuck it out until the end as I enjoyed it a lot more than the beginning of the book. I did not empathize with the either of the female main characters. The younger lead had several inconsistencies which did not endear her to me. She seemed to be quite focused on the weight of a person whether she liked that person or not. She was also alternately pe [...]

    5. Interesting novel of a young girl and her aunt trying to erase past regrets. I found the idea fascinating especially with all the new mysteries surrounding the Mayan phropecy of 122112 but the stilted language was just a turn off. If you can get past that then it is a pretty decent novel and wasn't a bad way to spend an afternoon in the sun.

    6. An interesting book that takes a long time to really find its feet. Much of the work has an almost surreal quality to it, with actions and events being described and yet visualization of them is hazy at best. In some ways it could almost be likened to the random wanderings the mind can take sometimes when very tired but being kept at some semblance of alertness with copious amounts of caffeine from coffee, much like how the characters in the book seem to be constantly drinking it to get through [...]

    7. This was a first novel, and Marianne warned me that it isn't her best. It's a NaNoWriMo, and until the last few chapters that take place in November, 2012 (the book was written in 2011), the language is stilted in a lot of places, or uses exclamation points where unnecessary, and so on. However, the storyline is intriguing; a Mayan spell that needs to be performed at the end of the Long Count in December, 2012. A young woman, Elena, and her aunt Rosemarian, undertake the mystical preparations ne [...]
