Marian Lanouette


Marian Lanouette is a multi-published author in both mystery and romance. Born in Brooklyn, New York she is one of ten children. She took to writing to explore new and adventurous places. While her friends traveled on planes for vacation, Marian traveled in books. With an overactive imagination, it didn’t take long for her to start creating her own characters and stories. The Jake Carrington Mystery 1st book If I Fail released in 2012 followed in January of 2013 with Burn in Hell. She is now working on the much anticipated third book in the series Mated for Life. Look for it in 2015.
Marian has had many interesting careers throughout her life. The most interesting was as an office manager for a local cemetery/crematory. When needed she also helped out with the cremations (thus, Burn in Hell was created from her vivid imagination.) She's likes to tell you that she's an accountant by day and a writer by night.
As an avid reader, she discovered mysteries by reading the Daily News as a youngster. Intrigued by the real life crimes, and how the police worked and eventually solved them, ignited her imagination beyond the ordinary. She's also a romance junkie who mixes both the mystery and romance genres with intriguing results.
An English professor marked her final paper with an A minus. He commented, “Well done, though you’re not Virginia Woolf yet, so add a little action to the story.” That one line had her punching up the action in stories to come.
Marian is a member of Sisters in Crime and Romance Writers of America.
Author side note: I hope you enjoy Noel, Noel, Noel. I love these characters, Noelle and Chase, who tugged at both my imagination and heart.
