Author of a 2010 book called "Tabloid Girl", described as a "behind the scenes" account of life at a tabloid newspaper. Told Lord Leveson the book was a "dramatisation of [her] time in the industry" and should not be considered as a legal document. Marshall said that despite claiming to be a "true story", the book was written for entertainment and so had dramatised events. "No reliance can be placed upon those stories as providing... an indication of general practice in the journalism industry," she told the Inquiry.
