About Jake Marrazzo
Hi, I am Jake Marrazzo! Welcome to my website! I am a twenty-year-old junior at Wheaton College in Norton, MA. I am studying film and new media studies. I wrote a children’s book called, “One Wants to be a Letter” that was published in October of 2020. And I am excited to share that my second book ‘The Dilly Dally Parrot’ has just been released, I guess I am now a best-selling author!

Have you read my books?

The Dilly Dally Parrot – JUST RELEASED!!!

To play, or not to play…. That is the question! The Dilly Dally Parrot is a story about a child’s challenge with balancing fun with schoolwork, something most kids can relate to. Read the amusing story of how Captain Brainbeard and Polly clash and eventually come to terms with their differences.

One Wants to be a Letter
One Wants to be a Letter is a story about being different. Our lead character, One, is a number whose friends are all letters, and he felt different and wanted to be just like his friends.

Have you ever felt different?

Throughout the story, One keeps trying to be a letter, when in the end, he finds out that being a Number One was what he was meant to be. When you are true to who you are, you will find your happiness.

A portion of the proceeds from book sales will go to the 4 Jake’s Sake Charitable Foundation, who helps families living with Duchenne make their homes and lives more accessible!

Don't Call Me Buddy

Jake has launched a new public service campaign, #DontCallMeBuddy! All to often, people would talk normally to Jake’s parents and then talk to Jake as if he was a small child even though he was a teenager. This behavior is patronizing and Jake want it to stop. Visit our page to learn more.
