Marcia Goldlist was born in Toronto, Canada. She has a Masters of Education from the University of Toronto. In 2000 she moved to Israel with her husband and 4 daughters. She is currently the mother-in-law to three and happy grandmother to four adorable grandsons and two delicious granddaughters!
Marcia began by writing in rhyme for family events. She has written for special occasions such as the engagements and weddings of her daughters and the birth of grandsons. At work Marcia started writing rhymes for staff birthdays, office memos, to disseminate information, to welcome new staff and to say goodbye to the old. As a result of this she was asked to write for other people's personal and family occasions.
The compliments and encouragement that Marcia received encouraged her to put her poetry into books so that others could also make special occasions fun and meaningful.
Marcia started using Bible in her rhymes and decided that it was time to give the book of Genesis a try. The result was Enjoying Genesis: The Bible in Rhyme. With her success she decided to keep going. To date there are four books available in The Bible in Rhyme series. Enjoying Genesis, Enjoying Genesis Workbook, Enjoying Exodus, and Enjoying the Book of Esther.
Among Marcia's accomplishments are:
~being featured in an article in the Jerusalem Post
~being featured twice in the Jewish Tribune
~being a featured author on FreeBooksy where my book Cards, Toasts & Notes For the Office: Express Yourself in Rhyme was featured.
