Marisa Calin is an actress, novelist, and screenwriter. Born in the south of England, she now makes her home in New York City.
Between You & Me, her first novel, published last year by Bloomsbury, is written in the format of a drama in two acts. Told in stage-play form, it’s the story of a 16-year-old, Phyre, her crush on a female drama teacher, and the loyalty of the friend who truly loves her — a friend whose gender is up the reader to decide. Kirkus wrote on a starred review, “This total-immersion emotional experience is one readers will both recognize and thoroughly enjoy.”
