Author Bio


Marnie Umbers

Pen name

Marnie Louanne


Marnie was always told she had the ‘gift of the gab’ growing up, but never in her wildest dreams did she anticipate that gift leading to interviews with some of Australia’s greatest authors, including Kathy Lette, Matthew Reilly and Heather Morris, just to name a few.

Her proudest moment was being ‘in conversation’ with Australia’s former Governor-General, General Sir Peter Cosgrove in 2020 for Frankston City Libraries and Mornington Peninsula Libraries.

At the heart of everything Marnie does is her love of words. She is a public relations specialist with an emphasis on writing, media relations and outside the box ideas. She loves connecting communities, fostering a positive workplace culture and empowering high performing teams.

Why Do You Write?

Because everyone has a story in them.

Have you been published before?


What are you currently working on?

I have a few things underway including some short stories, a book of essays (romance) and a children's book. I might even try to finish one of them this year!
