Hi. I'm Marcie.
I may have been named after the girl who called everyone "Sir" in the iconic comic strip, The Peanuts, but I can relate more to Frieda who constantly reminded us that she had "naturally curly hair". After all, that is how I am most recognized.
In previous chapters I've been a teacher and a theater educator, but now I spend my days chasing the picture book writer dream.
I enjoy reading, long distance running, watching baseball, and eating ice cream--not all at the same time! Although I never turn down a challenge.
I live with my husband--LEGO artist, Jonathan Lopes--and our mischievous sock monkey in Brooklyn, NY.

I am a proud faculty member at Kidlit Writing School, the Curriculum Developer for Time Traveler Tours & Tales, the Educational Consultant for Picture Book Month, and an active member of both 12x12 and SCBWI. Please click the icons below to learn more.
