Marjorie Brody

Marjorie BrodyBorn in the City of Brotherly Love, Marjorie E. Brody spent her early years in New Jersey, moved around the country, spent five years in Panamá, and settled in the heart of Texas. In spite of attending three different colleges in three different states, she completed her undergraduate degree in four years and went on to get a masters and a doctoral degree in yet another two states. (No, she wasn’t in the witness protection program. She was following her honey and his military career.)

When she did put down roots, she co-founded a mental health institute, serving as director for two decades. As a psychotherapist, Marjorie observed the joy, suffering, and resilience of the human spirit—experiences her characters know well. Now writing full-time, she’s replaced guiding clients toward their potential with guiding fictional characters toward theirs.

Marjorie enjoys scuba diving, the theatre, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. She and her husband have two married children, five grandchildren, and an eight-pound yorkiepoo who lives up to her name, Cuddles.

Her short fiction has appeared in literary magazines and the Short Story America Anthology, Volumes I and II. Her story, "It Was Said,” was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Other stories have been adapted and performed on the stage. Her novel, Twisted, a psychological suspense, delves into the secrets that emerge following a schoolyard rape and the remarkable young woman who fights to expose the truth. Twisted will be released in trade paperback and ebook in April, 2013.
