Marissa started writing stories around the same time she learnt to read. Her stories developed from primary school fairy tales into romance novels in her early twenties. While working her way through a counselling degree, she wrote many articles for Universal Magazines ranging from The Best Mechanic in Sydney to Where to Buy Fabulous Shoes on Sale. These days, she puts her writing skills to use creating songs for her latest album. She loves hanging out with family, reading good books and depending on budget and babysitters, she’s always ready to embark on her next holiday adventure.
