Author Biography

Marlene Fuson was born in Middlesboro, KY on November 20th, 1980. She was raised a few miles west in the small town of Corbin, KY, by her grandparents Marvin “Tiny” and Josephine Ellison. They shaped and molded her into the woman she is today. When she is not writing, she works as a licensed Medical Esthetician, a Mentor, and a Network Marketing Professional (affiliations with Zija International as an Independent Distributor & ASEA). She has been married to her husband Barry Fuson for 14 “miserably wonderful years.” She is also the mother of three wonderful children: Nicholas (the inspiration for her book), Alex, and Angel.

Her goal in life is to help people in many aspects of their own lives. She is passionate about inspiring people to become better and achieve the things in life that they really want. Her mantra is, always keep learning; a day without learning something is a day wasted.

A Note from Marlene:

“’What I Can’t Really Means’, was my first literary undertaking and is straight from my heart. I truly hope that you enjoy my work and hope that it blesses you with something to make your life better in any way possible.” Marlene

    Book Review

Reviewed by Katelyn Hensel for Readers' Favorite

Everyone has their doubts. There is no denying that our world is full of "can'ts" and "won'ts" and "nevers". These thoughts, these pervasive messages that have been pushed upon us by friends, family, the media, and even our own life experiences really only solidify the doubt about ourselves and our own competence. When we listen to this negativity, we are in fact giving rise to that kind of defeatist attitude, and forcing ourselves to remain in the same base positions. We counteract our own desires to succeed by giving in to painful doubt. What I Can’t Really Means by Marlene Fuson puts you through your paces and with its help you will never be a doubting Thomas or a Debbie Downer ever again.

I liked some of the clever graphics depicting the world of can'ts and no's. Marlene Fuson presents some interesting thoughts and debate to the concept of self motivation and what really brings a person down. It really makes you think about your own attitude, about your own decisions and what those decisions are doing to you in your present and future state of being. What I Can't Really Means is simply a way of gaining a more positive outlook on life. It encourages you to change your way of thinking about problems and troubles that come up in your life so that you can better deal with things with a better outlook. While the book had some "tough love" talk involved, it was clear that if you really try and put effort into managing your life and your positivity, you will go very far.
