Marilyn Lamb

Biography

Marilyn’s fascination with vampires began in her early teens, when she wrote the first draft of Blood Covenant. Many years after that original draft, and after becoming a born-again Christian, Marilyn rewrote the story from a Christian perspective. Curiosity and speculation blended to create a novel that ended in a way even she found surprising.

After five rewrites, many submissions, almost as many rejections (who can visualize vampires in a Christianity-based story, anyway?), some positive and encouraging feedback, she decided to self-publish.

An avid reader from an early age, the love of putting words together, of creating worlds, intriguing characters and compelling plots, seemed a natural next step. Marilyn spends her days traveling in her mind to times and places she has never known, putting those adventures onto the page.

A wife, mother and grandmother, Marilyn enjoys time with her family. She lives in Central Ontario with her husband and two cats.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
For me, the greatest joy of writing is taking a hypothetical situation, creating characters to experience it, progressing them along the plot line, and putting obstacles in their way until the "happy ending," whatever that may be. It's a wonderful way to escape the humdrum and find new adventures wherever my mind takes me.
What are you working on next?
At the moment I have several projects on the go, most of them in the revision stage. One is a sequel to Blood Covenant, called Dark Temptation, and a time travel romance (On Ravyn's Wing) that I'm currently sending out for consideration. It too may end up a self-published work, likely under a pseudonym, since it contains a more sensual plot line. I haven't decided on a pen name yet. Another romance is also in revisions, and I have others either incomplete or in formation stage. Always busy, it seems.
