Where Are They Now (Part I)


 Marla!

Marla worked at Little Shop in its former location on the square until a rapidly growing midsection made her no longer able to see her feet or reach the bottom bookshelves. Luckily this condition was rectified a few months later when she gave birth to her beautiful daughter, Ruby, who is now 2.5.

Now, Marla spends her days primarily taking care of the kid, catering to all the kid's whims, and making sure the kid isn't screaming. In her spare time, she does freelance writing and editing for spots like Examiner.com [http://tinyurl.com/atlexaminer] and Ruckus magazine [http://www.ruckusmag.net]. She also makes pinback buttons, jewelry, bottle openers, and other stuff and sells it at Little Shop, Taste, and online at http://www.buttonbabeboutique.com. And she hangs out a lot at Little Shop because she gets to talk about books with the fabulous staff and, well, it still feels like home.

(This is the first in a series about some of the wonderful people who formerly worked at Little Shop.)
