     Marisha loves gaming on the Wii. Her primary joy in writing is historical fiction and fantasy but has recently begun to take an interest in the cyberworld. When it comes to Cyberpunk, Marisha believes that the most important aspect of the plot is that people can believe they are part of the scene: they feel a sense of the character being trapped. She likes to develop the readerís skepticism in what the characters are thinking and saying.  Marisha feels that the characters thoughts and feelings should be common enough for all to acknowledge. She especially likes to focus on mundane parts of characters lives that are often over looked, but give clues to the characters' emotional state. When it comes to horror, Marisha enjoys writing graphic images and shocking scenes. She likes the images to be quick and concise like video games.
