Reggie & Me

Reggie and Me is the first book in the Dani Moore Trilogy. The story of Dani, told through her diary as she starts a new school in the wake of her rape and subsequent court case, is a unique take on the notion of being a survivor. It's available now; just click here!


Indigo Turtle’s workshops are led by Marie and combine training, development, team-building, communication, motivation and planning. Alongside these established themes, Marie brings her survivor’s message into the session which is relevant to everyone as ‘we’re all surviving something’.

Author Visits

A real privilege of being an author is meeting the people who you have written for. Typing away on your own, staring at the laptop, becomes worth every second when there’s an opportunity to engage with your reader and share a mutual appreciation for reading and writing.

About Marie

Marie began Indigo Turtle in 2010 with the intention of using a variety of approaches to show that both personally and professionally, there is more to life than just ‘surviving’.
