More About the Author
Marianne lives in Orange City, Florida, where the cacophony of sounds she hears from the pond in back of her home served as the inspiration for her first book, "Marsh Music" published in 2000. She is a favorite presenter at schools and literary conferences nationwide, reading her award-winning books and talking about her publishing adventures.
Before moving to Florida over twenty years ago, Marianne was an early childhood educator in New York, and also directed children's theater. Music, theater and writing have been a constant in her life and she puts all this to good use in her "interactive" picture books and apps. Visit her web site at www.MarianneBerkes.com
