About Annette Mardis

As a girl, Annette dreamed of being an astronaut, but she stank at science and math and became motion sick riding the bus home from school. So she went with her second choice—newspaper journalist—and stuck with it for more than three decades.

After years of ignoring people who said, “You should write a book,” she finally did. And then she wrote a few more.

When she's not working, Annette usually has her nose in someone else’s novel or her eyes glued to sports on TV. She has three totally spoiled pets, enjoys being the designated sightseer on her husband’s Harley, and volunteers at Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of diva dolphins Winter and Hope from the "Dolphin Tale" films.

Annette is the author of the woman's fiction novella "Getting Her Money's Worth" and the "Gulf Shore" series of contemporary romance novels. "The Shore Thing," Gulf Shore Book 1, will be published Sept. 1. And the sequel, "Shore Feels Right," is scheduled for release Nov. 3.

Reviews of Getting Her Money's Worth by Annette Mardis

Debra Salonen reviewed on Sep. 22, 2013

Getting Her Money's Worth by Annette Mardis is life-affirming, joyfully sad and very, very human. The two friends who make this journey together--one battling the big C--are people we all know. The author's writing style reflects her journalistic background. She fills in provocative detail of setting with a keen eye but never loses sight of the human players. I liked these very real characters. I enjoyed traveling with them, although I knew from the onset the ending wasn't going to be happy. And, yet, Allie's passing wasn't as sad as I feared it might be. Allie lived her life with great passion and--despite being short-changed time-wise--she definitely got her money's worth. My only criticism is the ending stopped a bit abruptly for me. Maybe I needed the closure of a funeral. I would recommend this book to everyone who has known and loved someone with cancer, which is probably everyone on the planet. Debra Salonen
