Marissa Doyle


Marissa Doyle graduated from Bryn Mawr College and went on to graduate school intending to be an archaeologist but somehow got distracted. After working in a nursing home, in fundraising, and as a stay-at-home mom, she finally figured out what it was she really should be doing (apart from the mom part), and started writing a romance novel. Three books later a perceptive contest judge told her that her story would make a great young adult book, and she hasn’t looked back since.

Her young adult books Bewitching Season, Betraying Season, and Courtship and Curses, all from Henry Holt Books for Young Readers/Macmillan, blend history (remember that archaeology background?) with a dash of magic and a heaping tablespoon of romance, and have won multiple awards and recognition in both the romance and children’s literature worlds. She lives in her native Massachusetts with her family, including a pair of litterbox-trained pet rabbits, and loves making quilts, sailing, and antiques. With fellow author and history geek Regina Scott she hosts the long-running (in its sixth year!) teen history blog NineteenTeen, is an Administrator on the Children’s Writers and Illustrators Message Board, and sits on the board of the New England Chapter/RWA.
