Marnie found her purpose in writing and publishing books for like-minded, creative entrepreneurs.
As a Best-Selling Author and entrepreneur, Marnie decided that the art of writing, publishing and marketing a book is one worth sharing and so she went to work building her brand as an Indie Publisher. In 2015, Meraki House Publishing was born.
Just a few years ago, saying 'I love what I do' was a fantasy for Marnie. After a long career in a high-powered corporate career, Marnie made the decision to leave behind the passion-less path of other-people’s-business to forge her own, and ultimately empower others to do the same. She set some big scary goals, found a mentor, worked harder than everyone around her and simply never looked back. Today, she continues to build her global brand and inspire others with her story of courage and fierce tenacity.

I also love coffee.

I'm a Toronto based illustrator who loves to draw and write her own comics. I'm a graduate of Max the Mutt College of Animation and Design. Drawing is my passion whether it be children's books, to comic books, to story boarding. I like to experiment with different styles and hope to inspire others with my work. I've been drawing since I could hold a pencil, and trying to conquer the world of art with it as my sword!
