My Blog

Hi, I’m Marie Whittaker. I’m an author, publisher, project manager. When I’m not engaged in work, I’m a book reviewer, gardener, and an outdoor enthusiast. I’m the creator of The Adventures of Lola Hopscotch and I habitually adopt rescue animals. You might be asking yourself what you’ll find here. Imagine a site where you’d see posts about books, animals, food, anti-bullying, travel, publishing, and exercise. That’s what you’re likely to find here on my blog. I might even surprise you with a new topic someday. Until then, I hope you enjoy it here.
