DJ Marcussen


DJ Marcussen lives in the Midwest with her husband, dog, and a zillion plants. (Well, okay, maybe not a zillion, but it sure seems like it when it's time to weed.) She has written articles and short stories for several publications and worked in many different fields, including (in no particular order): music teacher, insurance claims, auditing, actuarial, pet care services, baker, gardener, tax preparer and writer.

It might be added that of all her experiences thus far, she was a pretty good tax preparer, but a lousy baker. Nowadays, she spends her time tending to her garden, writing stories, and blogging. The Tax Angel is DJ's first e-Book (short story).

Smashwords book reviews by DJ Marcussen

  • A World of Joy on Dec. 17, 2013

    I read this book using the PDF format saved to my computer. But then I learned how to download the Kindle app, and that is even better, so I guess you could say this anthology opened up a World Of Joy for me to read other Kindle books! Thoroughly enjoyed this Xmas anthology. Some of the stories that stand out to me are: Weekend Wife by Elizabeth Rye, Axe Man by Jessica Knauss, and Once Upon A Christmas by Lucy Pireel. But honestly, they were all good, I just can't name them all. Nice Christmas read.

    Great read! This short story is a quick, fun read. Good way to break up the tension and relax after a busy day. It starts out with this brutal murder of a little old lady, but then quickly becomes funny as this sassy ghost of a woman finds her own murderer. Seems like this story would be a good first for a series. The "real", human detective is clueless! He obviously could use Flo in future cases. Loved it.... I'm ready for the next one...
