In 2011, Marion completed her memoir - Little Madhouse on the Prairie - which relays the story of her life. By shedding light on the cultural roots of her own abuse, she sets the stage for a way out of the cycle of violence against all children. Her memoir suggests ways one can heal from the wounds of their abuse, which if left untreated can lead to self-destruction. By telling her story, she hopes to open readers’ eyes to the serious and long-term damage caused by all forms of childhood mistreatment. She believes that only through awareness, education and healing can society prevent such future violence.

She is currently working with Girls, Inc. and the public school system to develop a self-esteem empowerment program titled Incredible Me for teenage girls.
Marion resides in Ventura, California, where she pursues her Foundation, writing and speaking activities.
