Marianne Richmond

Writer. Artist. Heart Nurturer. And star of her own fictitious reality show, “Driving with Mom.” Will she drive over her groceries? Hit the pylons? Tune in next week to find out!


Bestselling author and illustrator Marianne Richmond helps people “feel their feelings” through her beloved children’s books that speak to the heart. Her most popular, If I Could Keep You Little, honors the truth of parenthood — wanting our kids to fly while missing time gone by (hey, that rhymes). She credits her own family of one husband, four kids and a dog for giving her a career’s worth of stories. www.mariannerichmond.com.
