Marcia was born and raised in Argentina during the military regime which
ended with the loss of many young lives in the invasion of the Falkland
Islands. Amidst the devastating effects of military government and war,
reading and writing became a passion which expanded and transported her
imagination with the possibility of a brighter future.
At the age of eighteen, she moved to the United States, where she
studied English and started her own family. She soon discovered that the
love she has for her husband and children would naturally unfold towards
her European roots, leading her to become a genealogist and family
historian. A decade of searching, compiling, and learning the stories of
thousands of people has instilled in her a profound gratitude for the strong
ties that can be achieved in families through personal sacrifice.
So it is that through fiction, Awaken explores and exposes the
characteristics of true love and loyalty in times of fear, war, and finally,
death. But perhaps the most captivating element in the story is the battle
within the souls of the main characters as they search to know who they
really are and how they are connected.
