Marjorie Morrissey

Fiction, cultural heritage


Born and bred in Canberra, Marjorie started her career as a teacher and subsequently worked overseas and elsewhere in Australia, including the Northern Territory, where she had a public service executive career for many years. More recently, she returned home with more time for travel (when possible), study and writing. Finding Teo was conceived overseas, is her first novel and was written as part of her 2020 Master of Applied Arts and Humanities (Research) at the University of Canberra.

Over Saturday and Sunday 26 and 27 November, she'll be at Melbourne’s Greek Book Fair at the Greek Centre, 168 Lonsdale Street, 11am-6pm with a meet-the-author on Sunday, 27 November 4:00 pm – 4:15 pm.
