Marissa Price: #Robinpedia

Standard

‘A second book is different to the first one. People give you leniency in primary school, because you’re young and inexperienced.’

Marissa Price is an Australian reader, writer, and criminal mastermind. I know that last one seems like clickbait but she does have a Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice. She writes YA crossover.

Into the Abyss: Vault of Veronica is Marissa’s debut novel and takes Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet then puts it through a grinder. Best of all, it has Australian characters with Harriet Hunter, a woman from Tasmania, as the central character. She is sucked through a portal from modern Tasmania into Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juilet. The follow up to this novel is Into the Abyss: Scourge of Scotland. This time Marissa tackles Macbeth. The abyss is full of Shakespeare – so many of my past year nine students would agree with this sentiment. These books examime how seemimgly simple decisions can set off a cataclysm of results leading to more complex and fraught choices.

When she’s not being sucked into literary vortexes Marissa Price heads up The Literature Factory. The Literature Factory provides both tutoring for children and publishing assistance for adults. The tutoring devision designs individual support programs for children to help bolster their weaknesses, and play to their strengths and interests. Their are six specialised tutors with different skill sets. The publishing division helps connect authors with editors, artists, printers etc.
