Name: Marty/Marlie (2 pen names)
What you Write: contemporary romance, romantic suspense, YA
Agent: Amanda Jain
Why BookEnds? BookEnds comes highly recommended. I love your website and the professionalism I’ve seen from all your agents. BookEnds has long been a dream Agency for me.
What genres do you write? Contemporary romance and romantic suspense, as well as young adult contemporary and paranormal suspense. I guess you can tell I enjoy writing creepy, on-the-edge-of-your seat stories.
Plotter or pantster? A mix of both. I don’t start until I have the inciting incident, midpoint, crisis, and conclusion mapped out in my mind. Then I plot a few chapters ahead at a time, write, then plot some more. I think I’m a hybrid.
Synopses, love them or hate ‘em? Love them! It’s a chance to show my story to the world.
Drink of choice when writing? When not writing? LOL to not writing because I believe even write in my sleep! In the morning, I enjoy a piping-hot mug of black Earl Grey tea. In the evening, I enjoy an occasional craft brew. My daughter works for Allagash and she keeps me well-stocked.
Day or Night writer? Morning, when I’m fresh.
Twitter or Instagram? Or Facebook? Where can we find you? All three though I’m still building the social media presence for my second pen name.
If you could meet any author, living or dead, who would you want to meet and why?
Robin Hobb. She’s wildly creative and her stories keep me reading until I hit The End.
