Born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Domenic Marinelli remembers being quite comfortable within the pages of a book or the reels of a film, thus literature and film indeed became the focal point of his life at a very young age. So much so that his own writing garnered him some attention as early as the age of 10, when one of his stories was published in a school board periodical. He was published again the following year for another story and the year after that, his sixth grade teacher urged his parents to keep a close eye on his writing talent and to allow him to cultivate it further.
After high school, he studied Law and Society at Vanier College and Electromechanics and Drafting at Rosemount Technology Center in Montreal, but he left both institutions without a degree. He also studied other branches of technology extensively. In 2004, he earned a TOEFL teaching certificate (Teaching of English as a Foreign Language) from the International College of Applied Linguistics at a seminar held at McGill University.
He held a variety of odd jobs over the years as he studied and worked on his writing: He has worked as a video store and hardware store clerk, as an office and warehouse worker, as a data entry and shipping clerk, as an English language teacher, as a cook, and of course in technology, specifically as a dental equipment technician.
Domenic Marinelli is the author of multiple works of fiction and nonfiction, poetry, plays, articles, columns and essays. In his fiction, he has written in the Crime, Psychological Thriller, Horror, Sci-Fi, Transgressive, Neo-Beat and Non-Genre domains alike.
Some of his work has been published at/in: Pro Wrestling News Hub, USFL News Hub, Thirsty For News, Lombardi Ave, The Gamer, The Sportster, HotCars, XFL News Hub, The Travel, The Recipe, Ringside News, The Things, Show Snob Magazine, The Talko, Steel Notes Magazine, West Island Community News Blog, Dog O' Day Magazine, Park Extension News, the MTL Times, Daily DDT, E-Wrestling News, the CFL News Hub, Slam Wrestling, Guilty Eats, and he has written articles and video script content for babbletop.com as well.
He has written on a variety of topics including: sports, car technology, gaming, food, politics, crime, community, entertainment, current affairs and the spread and ensuing effects of the Covid-19 virus. All of this content was professionally published online and in print for local and non-local papers and magazines. He has also extensively covered the professional wrestling industry for a variety of publications, which is yet another one of his passions.
From 2017 until 2018, he wrote and operated two blogs: Resonant Words, an online column, and The Sunset Quill Review. Those sites are still up but void of new content. That work has since been collected in Resonant Words (articles) and in Flea Market Scripture - both titles available to order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Chapters/Indigo and are also available to order mostly wherever books are sold, as is his entire catalogue of books.
