Marlene is founder of Strait Gate Kingdom Outreach and considers herself a Kingdom writer and word warrior. Strait Gate was developed as a platform to fulfill her calling and mission of writing, teaching and reaching the unbelieving world as well as the Family of Faith.
Marlene loves studying Scripture and continues to study and learn more of what The Lord God is revealing for the saints to unfold and share with the Body of Christ and proclaim to the world. It is her firm belief that she is divinely anointed and chosen to write on behalf of the Kingdom for a specific purpose while wielding the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of Almighty God and carrying her personal shield of faith.
Marlene is also a Kingdom writer; a consummate storyteller and novelist. Her work does not easily fit into most literary boxes. Her style is uniquely hers in that she writes what interests and satisfies her Christ following spirit and literary muse at the time. She has multiple published novels and writes multiple genres but especially enjoys historical fiction edged in romance, highlighting the African American experience. Her historicals usually involve an actual little known or misunderstood historical event.
She also writes the popular contemporary BEA HAPPY series and the 2018 forthcoming RUBY REDD mystery series.
Marlene has an Associates degree in Theology. She currently lives in Pennsylvania where she writes and worships at Bethel Deliverance International Church in Wyncote, Pennsylvania.
