Celebrating the Art of Telling Personal Stories

A lover of language, story and people, Marcelle Soviero’s essays, poems and stories are often poignant, sometimes funny and always honest.  A mother and stepmother of five children, Marcelle’s work frequently elucidates the joy of small moments – a family meal, a kitchen renovation, a child’s birthday celebration.

But no matter what the topic, Marcelle’s essays give readers an insight into their own experiences. Her most recent book An Iridescent Life, Essays on Motherhood and Stepmotherhood, published in May 2012, illuminates what it’s like to be a mother and stepmother in a world where mother’s roles are ever-challenged and always changing.
