Author Biography

Marcelle Sirkus is a writer and award-winning digital media producer living in Los Angeles, California, with her young son. Suddenly and unexpectedly widowed in 2016 and left to raise her young son alone, she finds great comfort in the creative arts, and enjoys exploring the many projects she has inked over the past two years; they feed her soul in a wonderful way. Marcelle has promised her son that if this book sells more than 1,000 copies, she will get him a dog. Currently, they reside in a small condo apartment in a bustling part of the city. Moving a dog into their digs will likely require endless hours of city walking, chasing, washing, brushing, and caring for a pet that will probably pee and crap and shed and drool all over the place. And though her son promises that he'll do his share of the pet-care responsibilities, Marcelle is pretty certain that he won't. So, if you are thinking about purchasing this book, please reconsider.* Then again - maybe just go ahead and buy this book anyway! Marcelle promises, if you have Jewish loved ones in your life, it will come in handy! *Secretly, Marcelle kinda wants a dog, too.
