About M. Marinan

M. Marinan is comfortably located in Wellington, New Zealand: a city that ‘you can’t beat on a fine day’. (Disclaimer: there aren’t that many fine days, but she’s still there.)

She loves stories with adventure, drama and a happy ending, and writes in the same vein. She also likes beautiful things, nice people and carefully created art – the sort that looks as though it took effort, not like a toddler painted it with a brush stuck to their forehead. She also illustrates all her own work. It’s fun, she knows the characters...and she’s a bit cheap.

Thanks to Massey University for making her feel qualified to publish her own work (and for giving her a student debt that will follow her into her old age. It was worth it).

Reviews of The Mostly Forgotten Memoirs of Rose Red by M. Marinan

Audrey Driscoll reviewed on June 11, 2019

This book is one of the author's "Fairytale Memoirs," meaning an adaptation of the tale of Snow White and Rose Red. The first part follows the tale quite closely, but after the ungrateful dwarf is dispatched, things take off in a new direction, with plenty of twists and turns before the end. The best part of the book is the narrative voice of Rose Red, candid and full of humour, with plenty of snarky observations about other characters. There is a fair bit of what struck me as silliness, but that may be because I'm not really part of the target audience. Still, I generally enjoyed the tale, although words such as "genetics," "contact" (as in send word to), and "body language" seemed out of place in the fairy tale world.
