Marilyn lives on the outskirts of Melbourne with her husband and two children. A fully qualified Secondary School Teacher, she spent thirteen years in the classroom before taking leave from her profession to become a stay-at-home mum.
Since early childhood, she has been an avid reader. Growing up with books like, 'The Wishing Chair' and 'The Magic Faraway Tree', as some of her most treasured favourites, she has always had a fondness for fantasy and the mythical world. Moving into her teenage years, she developed a highly active imagination and often created stories which she liked to share with her friends. However, with a focus on her studies, she never seemed to find the time to commit those stories to paper.
Now, many years later, inspired by authors such as Stephenie Meyer,Becca Fitzpatrick and Claudia Gray, Marilyn has finally fulfilled a lifelong dream to write and publish a novel of her own.
For those of you who take the time, she hopes you enjoy reading it as much as she enjoyed writing it.
