Marinka Peschmann is a ghostwriter, journalist, writer, author and consultant.
She has collaborated, ghostwritten, and contributed to books, film treatments, and stories from showbiz and celebrities to true crime, education, U.S. politics and the United Nations.
She also writes legal filings.
In this era of fake news, misinformation, and defamation, she has litigated as a pro se plaintiff against five lawyers from five different U.S. law firms in multiple jurisdictions (2015-2020).
Loathing injustices, self taught, she first started writing legal filings in 2001 to help another individual. To wit, she is not an attorney and cannot give out legal advice. Thus, nothing on this website should be construed as legal advice.
In 2021 Marinka created The Break Free from Media Echo-Chambers 30-Day Challenge: and the ongoing series How to Legal: How to use the good side of the Internet to combat the dark side.
In 2011 and 2012, Marinka’s books, The Whistleblower: How the Clinton White House Stayed in Power, and Following Orders: The Death of Vince Foster, Clinton White House Lawyer were published–books she would have written had the events occurred in a Republican White House.
As such, she’s getting a kick of out FX’s Impeachment: American Crime Story, having dealt with several of the real life players, and is relieved that the long overdue truth about #MeToo and funny business is finally being acknowledged.
Clearly, there are problems on both sides of the political aisle, and when they are not held to account, it gets worse, and more people are harmed.
Marinka stopped covering U.S. politics prior to the 2016 U.S. Presidential elections.
In part, after being exposed to the belligerent, time consuming wrath and lies of right-wing murder conspiracy peddlers, she sounded the alarm regarding the dangers of fake news, conspiracies, and an abused Communications Decency Act § Section 230, before the public-at-large felt the real world and often tragic and deadly consequences of it. She had done her time. It was time to move on.
Marinka was first published when legal reviews were mandatory. Her first book collaboration, the critically acclaimed Hollywood memoir, The Kid Stays in the Picture (Hyperion) was made into a documentary by then Vanity Fair’s Graydon Carter and aired on HBO.
In a perfect world Marinka would’ve been a rock star, but she was not blessed with a good singing voice. So she writes.
