Marian grew up in south Louisiana in a small community south of New Orleans, Louisiana. Her love for the written word began while sitting on her grandparent’s front porch swing reading books. The stories allowed her to meet interesting people, took her to far away places and challenged her to think beyond her own world. Her desire to write about the South keeps her grounded in her roots and the hope that one day she can do for someone what many of the authors of her childhood did for her.
She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Women’s Fiction Writers Association. She hones her writing skills by attending writer’s conferences/retreats and reading many books on the craft of writing.
Marian writes from her home in Colorado, which she shares with her husband and a labradoodle named Chili.
While this bayou girl loves the mountains and, most of the time, the snow, her Southern roots won’t let her wear white after Labor Day. She still says y’all and can make a killer roux. She misses her family, fresh seafood, Cajun cooking, and King cakes. Proof that you can take the girl out of the South, but not the southern out of the girl!
“I love to read Women’s Fiction and have a passion for stories about women overcoming adveristy. Seems like a natural progression to write those types of stories. Even the occasional romance sparks my creative juices and I can’t help but to write those as well.”
