This expressed need plus Marcia’s interest in sharing origami with others motivated her to write an origami book geared for busy people.

She belongs to three origami societies and has a Bachelor of Arts degree from The College of New Jersey. Her other interests include art, puzzles, nature, photography, and composing music.
