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, Electromechanics and Drafting at Rosemont Technology Center (RTC), but he left both institutions without a degree. He at one point also studied at a seminar held by the International College of Applied Linguistics at McGill University and obtained a TOEFL teaching certificate (Teaching of English as a Foreign Language). 


Despite having a teaching certificate, he only spent three years in that profession. It was during those years that he taught the English language all over the island of Montreal and the province of Quebec.


Instead of pursuing teaching any further though, he opted to work as a cook as he worked on his writing. In cooking, he was trained by his father, a classically trained Italian chef. Domenic worked with him from a very young age and learned the craft from the bottom up, which helped him garner him spots in quite a few respected kitchens in and around the island of Montreal as a cook, sous-chef and even as acting chef.  

Writing Career



In writing, he has written in the Neo-Beat, psychological thriller, crime, horror, sci-fi, transgressive and non-genre domains alike. He also writes plays, poetry and of course, non-fiction. 

Some of his work has been published at/in: Pro Wrestling News Hub, USFL News Hub, Thirsty For News, The Gamer, The Sportster, HotCars, XFL News Hub, The Travel, The Recipe, Ringside News, The Things, 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 as well.

He has written on a variety of topics including: sports, car technology, gaming, food, politics, crime, community, entertainment, current affaires 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.
