Mardi Ballou

Biography

By day, she’s a mild-mannered language teacher. But after hours, Mardi Ballou’s wild writer persona erupts and entraps her in bondage…to her computer. Release comes only once she achieves her word count goal, at which point the maniacal chocolate monster will give her one sublime piece. And then she can spend time with her hero husband Lee, who gives great massages at strategic times.

So Mardi writes what she knows—romances—hot and mainstream. In addition to independent publishing—Emergency Ex: Teach Him Tonight, Book #2 and Photo Finish: Teach Him Tonight, Book #1 are her first two—she’s written for Ellora’s Cave, Samhain, NCP, Whiskey Creek, and Changeling. Also women’s fiction.
