I was born in 1953 in a small town in Illinois to a broken home. As soon as I learned how to read I, basically, moved into our local library. I always enjoyed escaping to another world rather than live in mine. When I was old enough to be on my own I became a nomad and haven’t stopped traveling since.
I have been married for twenty-eight years to the same man although we’ve been together for thirty-three. He is my best friend and thoroughly understanding of my need to see what’s on the other side of the hill. I couldn’t ask for more. My three kids are grown and living their own lives now. So it’s just me and my hubby, two cats, two dogs, two parakeets and three hermit crabs living down here in Alabama.
I am new to the writing world. I’ve always escaped to someone else’s but I decided to try creating my own. My fondest wish is to take someone else out of their hectic life and let them visit the world I would have. Hopefully, they might wish to live there as well.
I chose Scotland as my favorite country simply because of their endless struggles against their enemies even knowing it was probably hopeless. They never gave up through it all…they persevered to hold on to their freedom at all cost.
When I researched my genealogy a few years back, I found through my grandparents a direct line to Robert The Bruce with a connecting line going back through King David to Malcolm III. I have traced these lines clear back to the Picts, Vikings and Ireland. These were all grandparents that I am very proud of. Since then I have continued researching the history and times that they lived in. I hope some of it reflects in my stories.
Anyway, I just want to say…welcome to my world.

Smashwords book reviews by J. Lee Coulter

  • Surrender of Trust on June 01, 2013

    Surrender Of Trust By Mariel Grey If you buy only one book a year then, I highly recommend getting this one. The author has knocked the ball right out of the park on her first try at bat. The story is very well researched. I was impressed with her accuracy of the Arabian bloodlines, which I personally know myself, and put together in a very satisfying, neatly wrapped package. I do not agree with the one star reviews that are posted on Amazon. If you do not care for this type of book then why do you buy them? I found it to be a lovely story and the circumstances involving the heroine’s actions quite believable. And who hasn’t met a man in their lifetime that would plot out a way to seduce a woman that he wanted? As far as the “identical twin” business, I am fairly certain that in the early 1800’s they would not have made a distinction of their sexual variances making a difference as far as them being identical. And since it was the characters view of them…I don’t see the problem. The book has been re-edited recently to fix any missing words, etc. and I promise, you will not be disappointed. If I could rate it higher than five stars…I would! I am looking forward to reading more from this budding new author in the future. Do not miss this one!
