Annette Mardis


As a girl, Annette dreamed of being an astronaut, but she stank at science and math and became motion sick riding the bus home from school. So she went with her second choice—newspaper journalist—and stuck with it for more than three decades.

After years of ignoring people who said, “You should write a book,” she finally did. And then she wrote a few more.

When she's not working, Annette usually has her nose in someone else’s novel or her eyes glued to sports on TV. She has three totally spoiled pets, enjoys being the designated sightseer on her husband’s Harley, and volunteers at Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of diva dolphins Winter and Hope from the "Dolphin Tale" films.

Annette is the author of the woman's fiction novella "Getting Her Money's Worth" and the "Gulf Shore" series of contemporary romance novels. "The Shore Thing," Gulf Shore Book 1, will be published Sept. 1. And the sequel, "Shore Feels Right," is scheduled for release Nov. 3.
