Marie Norfleet, a jack of many trades; is a fairly new face in the literary world, bursting onto the scene, ready and willing to share her stories. Since she was a young child, writing became a significant factor in her life, often her escape from the reality of the real world. As life’s obstacles began to take their positions and the hurdles became harder to jump over, her love for writing slowly died. But at the tender age of 22, having been through many trials & tribulations in her young life, from abusive relationships, teen pregnancy, homelessness and prostitution to finding love, getting married and starting a family; Marie picked up her pen again. Writing a memoir like story with an urban fictional twist, Marie entitled the book “This Game Called Life”. 

The title came from an expression Marie heard a lot while growing up “Life is like a card game, either you play the hand you were dealt or you fold”. With the success of her book, Marie decided to submit her story to, G Street Chronicles, a major publishing house in Urban Literature.  She signed a contract with them in July of 2012.

A decision was collectively made, to pull the book from its online retailers; “This “Game Called Life” was revised and re-released on August 25 2012. Due to irreconcilable differences, G Street Chronicles and Marie parted ways in December of 2012. Marie has since, started her own publishing company Game Changing Publications. She has five dedicated authors signed to her house and together they have hopes of bringing a different flavor to the literature world in a whole.  Marie, with the help of Marcus Wroten (one of her signed authors) also has started up her own digital magazine, entitled The Game Changer’s Lounge.
