Marilyn is an Ontario-based writer whose stage plays have been workshopped in Toronto and produced in Calgary, Winnipeg, Hamilton, Halifax, Chicago, and South Dakota. She also writes short fiction - some of which can be found on Wattpad - and is always working on too many novels to ever finish one. As a reader she particularly loves speculative fiction, humour, books for young people, non-fiction about nature and animals, and "big idea" books. She's a vegetarian with a raging sweet-tooth who prefers pajama pants over "real pants" whenever possible.

Several layers of thick socks, in fact. Below is what I recently did to the wooden legs of an ottoman: An upside-down ottoman with socks on its legs.
This white wooden stool, on the other hand, got the pool noodle treatment:
A white foot stool with blue foam taped around its edges.
This is all part of the steps we've taken to wobbly-cat-proof our home. Littermates Charlotte and Rubin both have the neurologi Read more of this blog post »

This is a quick but thought-provoking read full of lots of great ideas, and it's pleasing that it doesn't descend into alien invasion stereotypes. That said, reading it now it definitely suffers from some of the outdated attitudes towards women/girls ...more

“All that I hope to say in books, all that I ever hope to say, is that I love the world.”
E.B. White

G.K. Chesterton
“Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.”
G.K. Chesterton

Neil Gaiman
“The house smelled musty and damp, and a little sweet, as if it were haunted by the ghosts of long-dead cookies.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods

Ray Bradbury
“First of all, it was October, a rare month for boys.”
Ray Bradbury, Something Wicked This Way Comes

“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.”
David W. Orr, Ecological Literacy: Educating Our Children for a Sustainable World
