Hi! I'm Marianne.
For 20+ years, I've been giving voice to the heart's journey through my books, cards, and other offerings that help you share your heart and connect with those you love. With 70+ books and nine million copies sold, I like to say I write for the “unique everybody.” Our stories are different and our feelings a lot the same. Curiosity and empathy are my jam. Inspired by my own childhood journey with epilepsy, I'm passionate about helping people feel seen and loved for who they are — and using the power of soul-reflection + self-expression to learn, heal and grow. (I'm a certified coach and reiki master, too!) As a wise therapist told me: When you belong to yourself, your belonging with others matters more. My hope is to be a witness and bridge to the message of your own heart!

YOUR WORDS BACK TO ME ARE SUCH A GIFT!
John D., an adoring dad
My daughter loves all your books! Every night when we say goodnight, we recite the last lines of 'I Love You So...' Every night! Way, way more than you know. Thank you for everything. Your work is a huge part of her childhood, and a reminder for me to soak it all in.
