Hi, I’m Marissa. I’m a bestselling author and CEO and Founder of Pilot Press.

I work with new authors and social media influencers to write, edit, design, publish, and market books that aim to enlighten, empower, and transform our generation.

On a personal note…

I’ve published two books of my own, both #1 Amazon bestsellers. My first book, Starving In Search of Me: A Coming-of-Age Story of Overcoming an Eating Disorder and Finding Self-Acceptance (Mango, 2018), and my second book, Everyone Is a Freak: Anonymous Confessions About Sex, Sexuality, and Desire (Pilot Press, 2019), both incorporate the themes of sexuality and self-discovery.

With my own work, I strive to empower individuals who fall outside of the “status quo” (nonconformists, truth-seekers, the LGBTQ+ community, and members of other marginalized groups) to journey into self-awareness, embrace their individuality, and challenge social conventions.
