About Me

Born in Brooklyn, New York, the only child of second generation Italian parents, P.C. Marotta has always held family traditions and values close to her heart. In her first book, Brooklyn Italian: A Memoir of Recipes of Days Gone By, Patrice pays tribute to the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, where many immigrant families settled in the early 20th century, including her great grandfather. It was in Williamsburg where her ancestors kept alive their Italian traditions of family and food and passed them along to the generations that followed. A heartwarming story of memories, history, family and the original Italian peasant dishes that started it all.

Teaming up with the very talented illustrator A.L. Houghton from the United Kingdom, together they introduced a little Shih Tzu named Twinkle and his cast of friends to the world of children's books. Uniquely written, each story entertains and teaches each child how important and valued they are to the world. An author with a voice that advocates self worth, selflessness and uniqueness in all. Real subjects with real characters told in a way children will understand. At the end of each book, coloring pages are included for every child to express their creativity. An artist from birth, Ms. Marotta believes strongly in the arts, the creativity they allow and the ability to express oneself enriches the human spirit.

Their first book, Twinkle and The Little Red Ball
(p. 2014) introduces us to a little Shih Tzu dog named Twinkle and the loveable cast of characters that he calls friends and some new ones along the way. Despite their differences, can they all come together for a great cause? Can they all join as one force as friends, new and old? Oh yes, and let's not forget the little red ball!
Their second book, One Shoe...Two Shoes...What's Ted To Do? (p. 2014) Meets up with the same cast of fun loving, zany characters but this time it's Ted E. Bear who makes us laugh. Teddy believes he should own everything! A funny story with a serious message....giving is so much better than receiving.

As a strong voice and advocate for all life, the preservation and conservation of this beautiful awe inspiring planet and the the generations we leave behind. The Marotta/Houghton team will continue to write, to teach each child they are the change, they are the future, they are the world.
