Her love of writing started young, at the age of seven, with her painfully  mundane childhood diaries. (No really, they're truly tedious--every meal from '91-'94 is logged, as well as all the minor plot details of every episode of Married with Children.) She also crafted some horrible poetry around this time. Then, in her teen years, off the avocado-green Acer desktop in her parents' basement, she ran e-zines that regurgitated the fashion, beauty, and lifestyle  advice she read about in print magazines.


She finally got her first paid writing gig in college as an opinion columnist and reporter for the campus paper, where she may or may not have fabricated a couple man-on-the-street quotes.

writes (and voraciously consumes) novels about people behaving badly.

These days, Marisa sneaks her writing in before her two young children wake up or after they go to bed. She lives in Chicago with her husband, kids, and a labradoodle that throws balls to itself and eats whole entire socks.
