Cendrine Marrouat is a passionate writer with a refreshing and profound voice. Her special ability to turn any topic – especially death – into an inspiring message of hope has helped people of all ages and from all walks of life to reconnect with their peaceful selves. No matter what your questions and challenges may be, Cendrine invites you to embrace life with an optimistic heart and renewed faith.
Cendrine was born in Toulouse, southern France, in 1978. She holds a bachelor’s degree in English-to-French translation that she received in 2001 from the Université of Toulouse-le Mirail.
In 2003, she moved to Canada and became the first member in her family to permanently settle in a foreign country. Deemed completely bilingual, she has written in English and French for many years.
Since the inception of her writing career, in 2005, she has been acknowledged as a unique voice in the poetic community. According to April Sims, “Cendrine is a profound writer who gives a voice, both through written and spoken word(s), to others that do not have a voice or are afraid to use theirs. Her words touch your heart and soul, because they come from her heart and soul.” Hailed by some as a Rumi-esque poet, her work is a reflection of her deep knowledge of English and French, her personal experiences, as well as her constant observation and study of the divine aspects of life. She likes to tread on challenging grounds, something that many authors would not dare do. Death and Christianity are two of the most prominent topics in her body of work. As a result, her readers are invited on a journey that will change the way they think and experience life.
Some of Cendrine’s poetry appear in the Stellar Showcase Journal, e-Muse-zine and Vertikal Magazine. In 2009, she was chosen to contribute to The Significance of Music, Justin St Vincent’s project that was released as a series of books. She was also a guest on numerous Internet radio shows, including “April Sims A and E,” “Author Speak” and “Nesheba of ESpiritE”.
A Translator by profession and a former Teacher, Cendrine also authored two plays, In the Silence of Words and Sound in Mind and Body (2007) that she hopes to direct someday. She writes for Examiner.com, both locally and nationally, and contributes articles to WAGTi Media Group and WAGTi Radio. She is also an aspiring photographer, using her skills to create the covers of her five books and her CD.
