Interview with Marie Lavender

Dear Reader,

Since 2010, she has published 24 books in the genres of historical romance, contemporary romance, romantic suspense, paranormal romance, dramatic fiction, fantasy, science fiction, mystery/thriller, literary fiction, poetry, children's stories, and YA fiction.   Check out more about all of her books here.
