I am Marie Lukic, a self-employed sole trader. A writer, a self-publisher and a teacher, my background includes publications in children’s fiction, non-fiction, plays, poetry and education.  Last year I developed my website, but I am still refining Kingdom of Nerada for publication.   I also self-published 14 of my texts on Google Play, and am attempting to sell them after designing my own covers. I enjoy being in a state of flux during which I am driven to write articles and reviews. Humorous elements characterise my literary works. I find writing enjoyable and absorbing. In addition, I include photo-journalism and research illustrations, to ensure my texts are entertaining. My motto is our voices count.

In addition under Art, I have a beginner art section in which I explore new works of art I attempt. A humorous attempt to portray my journey as an accomplished teacher and writer, with zero artistic acumen, I am gradually developing in a new field altogether. Thus far I have an oil seascape, a collage and now a primitive work of art. It is an opportunity for readers to accompany me in an area where I have little talent, though a good background in marbling. Despite my lack of skill, my art forms striking compositions, I believe. I also have some instinct for colour, developed during marbling acrylics.
