Marcia Trimble's life as an author began "once upon a time" when stories, inspired by her daughter's childhood interests, were running around in her head, enticing her into a career in publishing. Published as children's picture books, the Trimble Tots stories will 'live happily ever after!' The Trimble Tots Collection of 16 titles is evolving into Stories on Stage, a program of books, songs, and plays that allows children to play their way to reading fluency.

As a young adult, Trimble moved from Massachusetts to California where she lives with Charlie Trimble, and their daughter's dog Peppy, the pet that inspired her book, Peppy's Shadow. Books have always been the tools of her life, as a graduate of Boston University majoring in American Literature, as an early childhood reading specialist, and since 1998, writing and publishing children's picture books.

Trimble loves to see her stories through the eyes of her online customer reviewers, 7- to 12-year-olds, babysitters, mothers, and teachers.

Flower Green: "…imaginative." "The pictures are magical…Five points!"
Malinda Martha Meets Mariposa: "…makes learning cool…it's like the life cycle is a show we can watch." "…sparkles…Kids will be learning and playing at the same time."
A Name For Kitty: "…They made me read it over and over again. What a fun book! It simply 'meows.'" "After reading A Name For Kitty, my sister got the bug to read. Yes!" "I like…Kitty a Lot…funny…a good story."
P. Hermit Claims a Castle: "…wonderful…shows kids what it's like to be a crab for a day…" "Entertaining…captivates children's attention."
Witchy's Turned Around House: "I read Witchy to my 4-year-old daughter. We were both charmed…by the gorgeous illustrations and by the…captivating story of Witchy. A great treat for kids ages 3-7."
Peppy's Shadow, introduces shadow puppetry and focuses on doing what comes naturally with a dose of individuality.

Trimble likes to reach out to children with positive stories about things close to her heart. She likes to create characters that lead readers to an appreciation of their individuality and help develop self-esteem.
