Marianne Granger is a pen-name for this French native of Quebec (Canada). A trained psychosocial counselor, helping people has always been a driving force for her. In 1984, she developed and presented prenatal workshops, also providing new parents with a free 24h help-line aimed at guiding them to trust their instincts and intuition.
As a single mother of two teen-agers, she became coordinator of a Volunteer Center and later, director of a large Food Bank, managing and training employees and volunteers for over 10 years all the while writing, editing and publishing promotional material, magazines, newsletters and a book for fundraising.
Her love of reading, writing and cinema lead her to study screenwriting, which culminated in a completed feature-length screenplay. In 2001, she was struck down by a mysterious illness, quit her job and managed to become a Certified Life Coach by the end of 2002. She enjoyed a small private practice guiding clients toward the fulfillment of their unique potential.
The illness took its toll however, and she was eventually unable to work. Her condition is somewhat more stable today although no cure has yet been found. She is mostly house bound.
