Marie Tayse

Biography

I am a multi-genre self-published author. I love writing stories, and have been doing so since the age of 10. I had a poem published in an anthology of young poets when I was in high school.

I am fascinated by anything paranormal and am Founder and Lead Investigator for Seeking Answers Paranormal of Tennessee. (http://seekinganswerstn.wixsite.com/saptn) My book, A Walk into the Unknown, was written while relating to some of the cases the team has worked.

I live in Tennessee in my own haunted house.

I spend most of my time writing, reading, making memories with my family, or watching TV. I am a huge Netflix junkie. My favorite shows to watch on Netflix are Supernatural, The Walking Dead, The Night Shift, Criminal Minds, Impractical Jokers, Riverdale, Gilmore Girls, NCIS, Paranormal Survivor, Hawaii 5-0, and The Andy Griffith Show. But, as you can see I am always adding to that list.

I love all types of music as well. I often times find myself singing along to whatever is playing at the time. (That doesn't mean I'm good at it, but I love to sing nonetheless.)

A lifelong dream of mine is to live in a house on the beach. There is nothing quite like falling asleep and awakening to the sound of waves crashing against the beach and seagulls talking to one another.

I have two children, three dogs, two fish, and seven cats. My children's book series, The Adventures of Miracle, is based off of one of my cats.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
One of my dreams since I was ten years old has been to have a book published in print. I decided in indie publish when I friend of mine recommended it. She said it would be a good way to get my books circulated and in the hands of readers. So, I tried it and here I am.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
This is my first time publishing with Smashwords, but I like the idea of being able to publish to different devices without having to go through several different sites. KDP just does Kindle, Barnes & Noble just does Nook. Here there is a wider range of possibilities and I hope that helps add to my success.
