Marlane spent her childhood in Western Australia and studied in England and the USA for her BA in Liberal Arts. She has diplomas in Community Services and Counselling and worked for Alzheimer’s WA as a coordinator of community services for people with dementia.
Growing up, Marlane was a member of a fundamentalist and cultish Christian religion that kept Old Testament holy days and believed Christ would return to save the world.
After rejecting this rigid belief system in her forties, Marlane moved with her husband and five children to Evergreen, a property nestled in wetlands on the south coast of Western Australia. She is working on a memoir about her religious experiences and how she moved on.
Her passion is writing articles about spiritual freedom. This includes letting go of beliefs, stepping away from ego, opening your heart, experiencing mindfulness, and becoming present.
Marlane is a published author and shares her writing on Medium.com, Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
