ONCE BITTEN TWICE SHY is a witty yet poignant tale of Maxine. A professional 30 something gal that seems to have her life in order when all of a sudden she finds herself suddenly single and facing the dole queue. Her best friend Laura on the other hand appears to have it all and Maxine looks up to her and aspires to be like her friend. With her life crumbling infront of her eyes it has left Maxine baffled. What she thought and what she had assumed she knew about life, men and love comes to a complete and utter stop. Her friends support her along the way on her quest to understand life, love and what happens when love doesn’t always turn out the way you hoped for.

WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT THE BOOK
“It was a lovely easy read and I could relate to much of it. I especially loves the part about the Limoncello”
“Marisa marries together the ‘it factor’ of precisely what is important to a woman and how to apply confidence to be compelling. This book is a true account of how the shoe can maketh or breaketh the woman with positive re-enforcement and not be too hard on yourself. More importantly to ‘heel’ yourself.”
“Marisa’s positive personality and attitude toward life shines through her written words. Bravo.”

Marisa is a writer, blogger and a published author. Having been in the corporate orbit for some time she always had her creative side that she rarely expressed, until the ‘30 – something life crisis’ gave her the drive to put pen to paper. Her latest instalment called The Stiletto Woman is a about empowerment when faced with adversity in love, dating and life in general. How do you reignite your inner spark, confidence and be the you that you want to be?
It’s something she felt was important to write about as we are always faced with something in life that can challenge us, make us feel less than and gets us into negative thinking. Like many girls about town she has experienced some great and no so great dates and ‘situationships’ with men. Having heard many stories over bottles of wine and cocktails with friends she discovered that we all had a lot in common when it came to men and love. We bond over it, talk about it and support one another over it. It’s a never ending hot topic of conversation. Marisa enjoys fashion, cooking, socialising and connecting with people. She is also very much a ‘stiletto woman’.
