Welcome to the month long blog tour celebrating the writers of RWISA- Rave Writers International Society of Writers.
Today, my guest is the talented Marlena Smith. Welcome to the blog, Marlena!
Marlena Smith is a true Southern Belle at heart. Her home has always been in Alabama and she couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. Growing up as a preacher’s daughter, faith and family played a large part in her life.
Her earliest memory of writing was that of 2nd grade when she was selected to attend the Young Author’s Conference in her home state. Little did she know then that her future was being mapped out.
Marlena now wears many hats, including: writer, author, blogger, freelancer, reader, reviewer, researcher, paranormal enthusiast, traveler, and Secretary of Rave Reviews Book Club. Writing, though, has and always will be her passion. Thankfully, that passion can easily tie in with the other parts of her life.
Marlena has several works in progress, including an upcoming romance, titled THE POWER OF LOVE. This debut book is expected to be out this year. In addition to her debut, she has a YA romance, a cookbook and a horror screenplay on her to do list.
When she isn’t busy working with RRBC or an upcoming release, Marlena is hard at work helping fellow writers and also businesses through Freelance.13.Writer. This freelance business was created with the sole purpose of benefiting others, whether it be research, creative design, social media, blogging, or ghostwriting. The possibilities are truly limitless.

In her own words…
“I believe in making the most of every day. I believe that purpose and reason are behind every good and bad thing that happens to us. I believe that dreams are essential to a happy and full life and, more importantly, you should never stop chasing those dreams.”
* * *
Will it ever be enough?
Will I ever be complete?
These questions haunt me;
They scream out defeat.
A mind vacant of answers;
A soul lost in time;
A heart full of sadness;
And eyes that just won’t shine.
A whisper full of sorrow;
A smile full of regret;
A life less than ordinary;
One I wish to forget.
* * *
Life is too precious to not make the most of every day.
Strive to make more.
Make every moment count.
Tell others you love them.
Pray every day.
Have a thankful heart.
