Memphis author moves readers in new novel on love of family, search for freedom

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — This week marks the nationwide release of author Marie (Dee) McGee’s new family novel, “Freedom in Me.”

In “Freedom in Me,” what is going on with Mark and Pesa, Bill, Patty, Aunt Peggy and Mayor Bungy? Even Ms. Skippy is asking questions — talking to God about what is, what should be and why it is happening. Super Wife, mother and friend, is also asking questions. This book of fiction teaches readers that people all go into their own “upper room” to find the freedom in them. It also asks, “Why do I have to experience enslavement first before finding my freedom?”

“Freedom in Me” is a remarkable story about each beloved character’s journey, where they are determined to find the freedom in them.


Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or
