About Marcie

Hi there and welcome to my site!

I am a creative.

What’s that you may ask?

It’s anyone who is given to creating.  There are a lot of us out there. I write historical fiction stories.  I understand the challenges of balancing “creating” and platform building and marketing your handiwork.

In the process of learning how to tackle platform building as a fifty-something I thought, “Hey, I could help others while I’m gaining more skills.”

That’s when I found Gina Horkey’s Virtual Assistant course.  A virtual assistant gives you more time to produce your masterpiece.  They help you handle your platform building/marketing through writing content, scheduling posts and managing your social media channels.

I love to help others succeed.  So it’s a win-win for me to help your dream become more of a reality, whether that’s a music ministry, a crafting blog, a writer’s platform or any number of other aspirations.

When I’m not working on my passion for writing and helping others, I spend time with my handsome hubby of 32 years, Dean. We have five grown children and three beautiful granddaughters.

I cherish the wide open spaces of Nebraska where I live and coffee is a daily staple.  I’ve accumulated a plethora of experiences from being on an all-girls hay crew to Christian radio announcer to ten years as a wedding planner and florist. I love having lunch with my friends and reading biographies and historical fiction.  I am inspired by the stories of people and how they make a difference in the world.

To help you reach your goals, check out my blog for ideas on how to make your platform building easier. I’m starting with the basics and we will build from the ground up.

But if hiring a VA would be more of a help to you, then check out my Hire Me page for more information.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll sign up for my upcoming newsletter in the box below.  I will share tips and shower readers with giveaways for resources that just might make things easier.

Blessings on your creative venture,

Theresa knew she should listen to her mother, but the exhilaration was just too enticing. As the streetcar slowed to a rolling stop, she bounded on to the first entrance and immediately heard her mother shouting from the front door. “Theresa, I have told you numerous times not to jump on to that rattle trap! …
