Librarian Note: Also writes as Marisa Doherty

I am a twenty-something-year-old writer who has lived in four states and counting. At the moment, I’m interested in queerness, cultural identity, the urgency of living in this era we call the Anthropocene, climate change, and the disconnect between humanity and the landscapes we claim. When I’m not writing, you can find me voraciously seeking out new books, films, and television shows.

In 2017, I graduated summa cum laude from the Santa Fe University of Art and Design, with a degree in creative writing in the poetry and nonfiction tracks. As part of my senior thesis, I published my first writing collection, titled In The Nucleus.

As May 2020, I have a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from t

Marisa’s Recent Updates

Marisa added a status update: With another year of reading behind me, this feels like a great time to stick a reminder on my GR page that I am primarily tracking my reading with StoryGraph now. And Goodreads doesn’t yet shelve 10 indie books I read this year, which included a couple of my top faves of the year 👀

Follow me @ mgdoherty over on StoryGraph if you want to spy on what I’m reading in real time 😂

Oh my god, this was so good. I think the ending was a bit rushed for my preferences; it felt like once the mystery was solved, it was a mad rush through the epilogue, and I would’ve loved to read more slowly about the consequences. But regardless, st ...more

Ok I will update this later but I loved this book!!! The way the story came full circle is amazing and I feel like I could learn so much about constructing a haunting narrative from this book. I have no idea how the time/ghost mechanics/physics worke ...more

The third installment of Down to Agincourt demands to be read carefully. This is the darkest one yet (chapter 7 is especially dark —Seperis isn’t kidding with those content warnings — but the book is ultimately really rewarding. We get some answers a ...more

I am continually amazed at how good this series is and how thoroughly it stands on its own, to the point I often forget it is fanfic. The worldbuilding is amazing and I love how the world of Chitaqua is fleshed out in this book. We get to know all th ...more

Alexa, play “stolen season.”

This sequel is totally different in tone than the first book — which makes sense because Henry Silver and Tobias Finch are totally different characters — and I’ll admit, it took me a while to get used to Silver’s humorous,

A gem of a book. I wish I remembered how this collection got on my radar but I’m so glad it did! Dana Diehl will definitely be author I’d like to read more from.

Absolutely adore this book! This is for anyone who gets emotional thinking about the dead girls in tv shows, the side characters who die in the first act in movies. If you’re a fan of poetry, if you’ve ever stanned a dead girl, do yourself a favor an ...more
