Marie Serio is the author of five books. At eight years old, she was inspired to write poetry, which came naturally to her. She created and was editor of Poetry Corner, as well as doing freelance feature stories for Connecticut newspapers. It was then that she began writing children’s stories from true experiences.
Over the years, while working in a middle school, she inspired children, to “Follow your dreams, your passions, and never give up.” Her love of writing also includes traditional letter writing and a card ministry for those who look forward to inspirational uplifting.
Marie was born in New Haven, Connecticut, where she grew up. Later in life, she resided in Naugatuck, Connecticut, and Waterbury, Connecticut, before recently retiring to South Carolina with her fiancé, Bob, their dog, Missy, and their potbellied pig, Piglet.
