Amazon Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

Set in glamorous 1970s Las Vegas, OVERLAY is the fighting-to-come-of-age story of a resilient child born into an ongoing cycle of alcoholism and abandonment. Marlayna develops a powerful sense of self-preservation in contrast to the fallen adults entrusted with her care. Her profound story explores the characters and events populating her life as she moves from home to home, parent to parent, family to family, ultimately becoming homeless at the age of fourteen.

Out of the resources of her remarkable childhood emerges an inner strength that will charm and captivate readers and remain in their consciousness long after the last page of her story has been turned.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Marlayna’s writing pulls the reader in from the first paragraph. There is a casual easy flow to her storytelling abilities. It is a heartbreaking story and yet I could not stop reading. I had to know what happened to Marlayna next.


I can say without a doubt that this is one of the most powerful memoirs I have ever read, composed by one of the most gifted writers I have ever encountered. You will not be disappointed!


Ms. Brown does an incredible job of describing characters and events with such panache that you are drawn into her story from the first page. You see her life and challenges through her eyes and you feel her pain. Take your time with this book, read every word. In each you will find meaning, truth, and depending upon your own circumstance, you may even find some answers.


Marlayna Glynn Brown writes in such a way that you feel, hear, touch and smell the story. This story comes from the depths of what is gut wrenching memories. This is a fantastic read!


I read this book in record time. I’m quite sure it will stay with me forever, however. I greatly admire the author. Thank you so much for sharing your life with us, Marlayna. I wish you the best!
