Marianne Lise

Marianne Waterstradt’s writing career began in undergraduate school at the University of Maryland when she authored a small piece that received rave reviews not only from her professors but from all who read it.

While her academic career was punctuated with writing success, she didn’t immediately succumb to the idea of authorship as a profession. Rather, her professional life truly began at age 32 when she decided to attend law school at the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law; a school known for its most prestigious faculty member ~ Justice Anthony M. Kennedy.

After graduating with top honors in the summer of 2003, she began a lucrative career in the private sector. After the briefest of trials, she became disenchanted by the grind. She went on to work as a research attorney in the Federal Judiciary again meeting with restless in her work. Finally, however, her initial passion again simmered to the top and she left law permanently for her truest calling: sharing her writing with the world about her.
