Marilyn Kelly


I write super-strong women, which is no surprise. Traveling the world with five brothers, my theme song growing up was Anything They Can Do, I Can Do Better! A few years ago, I started writing sexy romances and my college sweetheart husband jumped in, helping me with research and grinning all the way. My goal is to make thousands of readers happy and fulfilled.
My newest release is Banished to Paradise, a historical romance novella included in the Sizzling Florida Heat anthology, compiled by members of the Tampa Area Romance Authors (TARA) chapter of the romance Romance Writers of America (RWA). Thank you, ladies, for including me in this super sexy anthology. If you're looking to sample different genres of romance, from erotica to romantic suspense to historical, this anthology is a bargain and I highly recommend all the stories.
My Wanton Widows series is now complete with Ellora's Cave! Sounds of Love, Puzzles of Passion, and Scandal of Art are all set in Victorian England and feature wanton widows who find their perfect mates after much struggle.
My first contemporary novel is called All The Boys I Ever Kissed (A Choose Your Ending Novel). Sometimes your future is in your past. If you like The Bachelor or Bachelorette, you'll love this book! There are three amazing men - a DC firefighter/paramedic, an athletic Latin millionaire, and a British baron. Which one will win Lana's heart? You choose!
I'm also the creator of the Eleven Senses - Who Knew? booklet and workshop. I have developed a related workshop, called What Every Scene Needs, and am available as a speaker.
