Thoughts from Old Walls – Revised Edition is a collection of poems through hope, dreams and memories, her poems cover a wide range of emotions but is also a commentary on the human condition. Marianne’s ability to observe the innate characteristics in nature, objects and people enables her to tell the stories that define moments in time that we all can recognize as somewhere we have at one time been; the sense of awe and wonder that we’ve all been captured by at some state in our lives, the feeling of despair and loss, the places we linger in between with the longing and questioning, or the sense of new found hope and anticipation of the future.

“We know that teddy bears have ‘special, magical powers’ and in each of the poems you will hear stories written right from the paw and from the heart. The paperback poem book has 25 pages and eight charming poems. After reading the Teddy Bear Blessing poem all of us will sleep better at night just know what the bears are up to when we are sound sleep.
The book is a nice addition to a teddy bear collector’s library.”

Marianne Loyd’s new book Legionnaire Danjou My Story is about a little mouse who joins the French Foreign Legion.
The French Foreign Legion is said to be the toughest army unit in the world, but what the Legion doesn’t know is that they have a secret unit below their training camp of which they remain unaware. This unit consists of a legion of mice. Here they eat, sleep and train underneath the Legion’s Head Quarters. A unique underground system with its own laws and training.
With their own recruitment offices throughout France, one day in Aubagne Head Quarters, outside the Mice Legion’s entrance, knocks one little mouse, later to be known as Legionnaire Danjou. This is his story, plain an simple, making no excuses, no apologies, just telling it like it is, raw and uncensored.
…This is a different story from The French Foreign Legion
