Writing as MARI CARTER
I have been writing several genres over the past 15 years. After my last few releases under a pseudonym, I had some major life changes and writing took a backseat. I have returned to the world of writing and publishing with a new persona along with a new focus on contemporary romance set in the medical world. I am a nurse by day, so it seemed only natural to combine my medical knowledge with romance. (I have seen it happen in real life too!) When not working as a nurse or writing, I love hanging out with my husband and our kids. We play video games together like Star Wars Battlefront II, Halo and World of Warcraft. I enjoy playing the online card game Hearthstone. I am not overly good at it, but better than some. I also enjoy crocheting and I am currently teaching myself to knit.
About MARIANNE LACROIX, my alter ego
I have written under the name of Marianne LaCroix in the past. As Marianne I wrote steamy hot romances for (defunct publisher) Ellora’s Cave. Some of my titles included Crossed Swords and Descendants of Darkness series (both were Romantic Times Bookclub Top Picks!) I’ve also earned a Paranormal Excellence Award for Romantic Literature (PEARL) Honorable Mention, and a Cupid and Psyche Award (CAPA). Most of my books written as Marianne LaCroix are no longer available. (One is available on Amazon. See my Backlist.) I may reissue the books but have no plans to do so in the near future. I rather focus on new material.
