Greetings. I am Marianne G. Petrino. I have self-published Thundercats fan fiction for many years. My web page had all of my work to date. Sadly, in recent years, I have neglected it while I attempted to carve out a place for myself with more formal self-publishing, which began with the National Novel Writing Month of 2010. So on August 19, 2015, I took the web page down. Maybe I will put it all up here or on the archive for the Organization for Transformative Works. Still pondering my next move with the Thundercats fan fiction.

Before my "career" as an "author" came to a whimpering end, I had self-published two urban metaphysical, chick lit novels with an Italian twist, one travel memoir, and a young adult equine science fantasy. This last book only had a short sale run. I am putting it up here on Wattpad, so that more people can enjoy it, because I think it is my best book, and it might also do some good. ) If you enjoy my story, Silver Hooves in the Darkness, please consider making a donation to combat Fragile X, an inherited disease. You can check out the National Fragile X Foundation ( ) and Fraxa ( ). Thank you in advance for your consideration and kindness.

I continue to be involved with the SF Microstory contest on LinkedIn. That group has published an anthology of flash fiction called The Future Is Short: Science Fiction in a Flash. Volume 2 has just come out. Both are available at the usual online sources. You might be inspired to join the fun. I intend to post some of my entries that are not in the anthology.

My writing style tends to be formal and in third person, not a popular combination these days. However, I like to think that I tell a good tale. So I hope you will consider taking a journey in reading with me.

Thank you.
