About me

                                                                   Marie Gilbert Bio


Marie Gilbert is a multi-dimensional super-heroine with more adventures than a comic book museum, stuck in a grandmother’s body. Retired from the Academy of Natural Sciences, Marie finally has time for her first love: writing. She writes primarily paranormal and science fiction stories.

Marie has published her first book called Roof Oasis. It is the first in an apocalyptic series that takes place in the future and brings two worlds together in fighting a mysterious man bent of the destruction of all life on Earth. You can purchase the book on Amazon and Kindle. Marie is also published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Touched by an Angel which will be out in October of 2014. She is also featured in Dark Gothic Resurrected Magazine.


Marie's popular blog, Gilbert Curiosities, chronicles her adventures with her nine grandchildren, her ghost hunting investigations and her love of Steampunk and zombies. Marie is also a senior staff writer for the pop culture website Biff Bam Pop! and a contributing writer for Go Jane News.

Marie served as co-editor of the South Jersey Writers' Group short story anthology, Tall Tales and Short Stories from South Jersey. Marie and Dawn Byrne, a co-member of the South Jersey Writers' Group, are known as Super G & Super D and you will find them at the many coffee shops and book stores around New Jersey promoting the anthology for the group. Marie's stories "Night of the Attack" and "Where Are You Zeppie?" appeared in the collection.

                                    A word from Steampunk Granny                                       

I always say that if you know my childhood and my family, you'll know me. We are our genetic code and there is no escaping that truth. You can only learn how to survive. My weekly episodes of Life with Fred & Lucy tell about me and my siblings growing up in South Philadelphia. My siblings and I learned everything we never wanted to know from our parents, but we still love them. My childhood was full of strange but true events. People in my family tend to be ghost magnets; it must be hereditary. My parents are no longer alive, although they do keep it touch, in fact they've decided to stay at my house. This may explain why I love to write horror stories.
I have nine grandchildren who supply me with some great writing material for my blog. Even though I write about horror, paranormal events and Sci-Fi, my blogs are mostly about family. The little angels drag me into many of their adventures and I try to incorporate them into mine.

 I've made many friends, since I started blogging: writers, actors, directors, producers, Steampunk Entrepreneurs, Steampunk Designers, musicians; you name it, and I'll post it here on this blog.                                                
 I was asked to write the weekly episode of AMC's "The Walking Dead" for the multi media Website Biff Bam Pop! I cover this show along with reviews of books, movies, and T.V. shows.

I'm not your typical granny. Hell No!  I love dressing up in Steampunk Clothing and attending Steampunk Events, but I also love writing about Zombies. I joined the Zombie Squad and I'm ready to "bug in" and "bug out". Check my page on zombies to learn how to prepare for the apocalypse. Who says that you can't have fun at the end of the world?

 My three friends and I, who all have different levels of sensitivity to the paranormal world, have our own investigative group called Purveyors of Spirits . If you have an unwanted guest (not living) contact us. My e-mail is below. Not all ghosts are harmful, but if you're not sure what you're dealing with; call in the professionals.


    So, stop by and visit me every week, and allow me to tell you a good a story. I can be reached at my e-mail: mariegilb@comcast.net
