Hi. I'm Marcie.
I may have been named after the girl who called everyone "Sir" in the iconic comic strip, 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, an actress, and a nanny, but now I spend my days writing children's books!
I enjoy reading, playing my ukulele, running, watching baseball, and eating ice cream--not all at the same time! But I'm not known to turn down a challenge.
Although I will always be a Brooklynite at heart, I now live with my husband--LEGO artist, Jonathan Lopes--and our mischievous sock monkey in San Diego, California.
