Marie Gameson

Marie Gameson was born in Trinidad but spent her childhood in Kuwait, El Salvador, and Barbados. She now spends her time between London and Suffolk, and works as a Business Analyst. She did an MA in Translation Studies (Chinese), and her dissertation enabled her to explore a long-standing interest in ancestor worship.


Marie and her mother co-wrote 'The Turtle Run' - a book based on the legacy of the ‘English Redlegs’ – the Monmouth Rebels who were exiled from England to Barbados, following their defeat at the Battle of Sedgemoor in Somerset in 1685.


In 2017, Marie's first solo book 'The Giddy Career of Mr Gadd (deceased)' was published. This was a tale about grieving for the living, involving Zen, Catholicism, Chinese ancestor worship and dodgy 70s music.


Her latest book, 'The Day Jack Sacked His Therapist' explores the theme of how our identity is dependent upon the people around us, and how that sense of Self is threatened when the people close to us change - particularly if they decide to improve themselves.

  1. The Day Jack Sacked his Therapist by Marie Gameson

    The Day Jack Sacked his Therapist by Marie Gameson

    Coming soon ... In 1981, an eleven year old Jill drags her young brother Jack through a London cemetery until they reach their mother’s gravestone, where she tells Jack that nobody blames him. But clearly, they do. Whatever childhood crime Jack was guilty of, it seems to have left him with a strange curse: people around him only feel good about themselves when his life is out of control. Although Marion - his stunning girlfriend - is immune to this hex, even she can’t halt Jack’s decline into fluffy-bearded, drink-sodden dumpiness. When Marion finally leaves him, Jack resolves to change to win her back, but every attempt he makes to improve himself is met with strong resistance by those around him, especially by his therapist. Jack’s quest to regain Marion intensifies from the simple target of reducing his beer-gut to remembering what happened on a dark, stormy afternoon in 1978. Learn More
