By day, Marian Kent is a lawyer, a schmoozer, and a do-gooder. At heart, she is a purveyor of pretty words, an interpreter of dreams who flies by night. Prone to hyperbole and shrieking in ALL CAPS, Marian eats far too much cake. Marian writes poetry and stories from western Massachusetts, where she lives with her husband and two children.
