About Marie Davis

Feminist author, journalist, artist, and internationally syndicated cartoonist ("Besos…Kisses…Bisous…") Marie Davis’ career spans twenty years of seriously disciplined creativity.

In 2000 she began working with co-writer Margaret J. Hults and together they have published two short stories, “Simone’s Castle” which will be out this year in an anthology from Tightrope Books and, “The Million Dollars I Won and Ate” out in an anthology, "Motif-Come What May", (MotesBooks 2010).

Their first novel an audio book, titled "Hey Diddle Diddle"—For Lesbians and Other Grownups, has been called, “A fast juggle from humor to poetry and prose, and not at all to be dismissed as merely humor.” Rave reviews have included, “That little childhood gem is forever altered, tainted in the best possible way, warped into something sexy and funny and just a little bit askew...” (Gay People’s Chronicle 4/10/09) “…the first mention of Lil had me rolling on the floor, unsure I was hearing what I thought I was hearing...” (Rainbow Review, 5/26/09).

When not drawing, researching or writing Davis is frequently held hostage by her four obsessive-compulsive cats in her 19th century Victorian home, which she has surrounded with large shrub topiaries of a rhino, an elephant, penguins and others of that ilk.
