About Marianne Sciucco

I'm not a nurse who writes but a writer who happens to be a nurse. A lover of words and books, I studied the craft of writing as an English major at the University of Massachusetts at Boston and briefly worked as a newspaper reporter in New England. To avoid poverty, I later became a nurse and write about the intricate lives of people struggling with health and family issues. A native Bostonian who loves Cape Cod, I make my home in upstate New York. When I'm not writing contemporary and young adult "flinch-free" fiction, I work as a campus nurse at a community college. I am also a founder of AlzAuthors blog, spotlighting carefully vetted books and blogs for those living with Alzheimer's and dementia. To see what else I'm up to visit or find me on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads. You may also drop me a line at
