Marjorie wasn’t in the witness protection program although tracing her geographic moves on a map might give you that impression. She could blame the USAF for her lack of permanence, but she enjoyed the adventures too much to want to place blame. Consider the challenges: three different colleges in three different states (and still completing her undergraduate degree in four years). An additional two states and one foreign country later, she obtained a masters and doctoral degree.

When she did put down roots—in the heart of Texas—she co-founded a mental health institute and served as its director for two decades. As a psychotherapist, Marjorie observed the joy, suffering, and resilience of the human spirit—experiences her characters know well. Now writing full-time, she's replaced guiding clients toward their potential with guiding fictional characters toward theirs.

Marjorie enjoys scuba diving, the theatre, spending time with family and friends and, you guessed it, exploring new locales. She and her husband have two married children, five grandchildren, and an eight-pound yorkiepoo who lives up to her name, Cuddles.

Her work has appeared in such literary magazines as All Things If, the New England Writers’ Network, and the Black Fox Literary Magazine, as well as three volumes of the Short Story America Anthology. Her stories have been adapted and performed on the stage, and one was nominated for the Pushcart Prize.

Her current novel, Twisted, is a psychological suspense, set in an economically depressed, East Texas paper mill town. Award-winning writer, Eric M. Witchey, contributor to The Writer and The Writer’s Digest, states, “From the first heart-twisting scene to the final untwisting, Marjorie Brody's brutally honest debut psychological novel, Twisted, kept me riveted, terrified, righteous, ashamed, and tearful. Pages flew past until, with no more pages to turn, I realized that, like (the protagonist), I would never be the same.”
