“I was thrilled to get the news and look forward to spreading rhyming holiday cheer this season,” said Amy Marschak.  “Last Christmas was amazing, I was even able to poetically represent Santa at two Christmas Themed athletic marathons.”

When asked what she looks forward to this holiday season, Amy Marschak replied, “Laughter, smiles and inspiring others to hear their own internal poetry, this Christmas and throughout the year.  I am also looking forward to my pre-Christmas briefing with Santa, Mrs. Claus, the elves and the reindeer up at the North Pole.  The North Pole is an incredible place.  You cannot help but be extremely joyful when you are in the presence of Santa and all of the North Pole residence.”

About the Author

I have been writing since I was little and found myself bored but yet still trapped in a classroom. So instead of staring out the windows at school, I would write poetry in the margins of all of my school notes. And in this way I could pass the time without having to listen to the teacher when they were being boring or depressing. A few of these poems are in my first book “Poetry for All Those Breathing” which is now in its Seventh Printing.Poetry has always been a way for me to be heard by my family. If I would simply state how I felt, I would frequently be ignored but if I wrote it as a poem, what I had to say would be listened to. Sometimes my parents would even cry when they heard my poetry.
