New book “If They Didn’t Talk to Daddy” from Page Publishing author Markia Marlene is the dark tale of an outwardly happy and prosperous family with a stable home life. Behind closed doors though the Kyles are plagued by an abusive marriage and imbalanced power dynamics between husband and wife.

"I believe there are no bad kids out there just bad decisions that are made because of what children are raised seeing. I hope this book helps people to understand that they can achieve anything that they want to.”

Markia Marlene, a woman of strong faith and a proud family member, has completed her first book “If They Didn’t Talk to Daddy”: a gripping and potent window into the mangled family values that can exist behind the seemingly pristine facade of an American household.

About her book Markia says: “It's a work of fiction and I wrote it because I notice that a lot of our children are growing up picking up a lot of bad habits because of what they see rather than what their parents should be telling them. I believe there are no bad kids out there just bad decisions that are made because of what children are raised seeing. I hope this book helps people to understand that they can achieve anything that they want to.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Markia Marlene’s poignant tale is a gritty, intense, revelatory, and ultimately triumphant tale of perseverance and success in the face of nearly innumerable obstacles.

It all began when O was sixteen. Adrianna, the snoop of the family and the novel's narrator, notices her father started disappearing with O for long stretches of time. Her curiosity about their "special relationship" grows all the more insatiable when O's newlywed wife, Debbie, turns from a vivacious, excitable young woman into something more resembling a ghost after their marriage. Adrianna suspects something sinister, and when her intuitions prove correct, the mystery of how this otherwise happy family could be so torn up inside begins to unravel.

“If They Didn't Talk To Daddy” also tells the story of Diana, a single mother who, in spite of all odds, makes it in the worlds of real estate and infant's fashion. Diana serves as a brilliant counterpoint to the tragedy of the Kyles, proving that true happiness is possible on one's own. Told in an accessible, rhythmic vernacular, this novel will shock, dismay and delight readers in ways they will never forget.

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring story of redemption can purchase “If They Didn’t Talk to Daddy” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
