Marlie Harris


Marlie Harris spent her youth reading Anne Rice, Stephen King, Dean Koontz and then later graduated to Neil Gaimen, Clive Barker, and H.P. Lovecraft.
When Marlie is not writing stories and poetry, she runs her business, Back Office Business Strategy. Thankfully, the business also means a lot of writing. She is a member of Treasure Valley Critiquers and the Treasure Valley Writer’s Guild. She has been writing for most of her life while exploring various careers from grain elevator operator, concrete finisher, and ambulance driver to administrator of a Home Health Agency, project manager, and analyst for a Top 40 Corporation.
The Ridge Falls Series Book 1: Into the Darkness is Marlie’s first publication. She is currently putting the finishing touches of her debut novel, “Leather” a book set in Ridge Falls and tentatively ready for publication in November. Her passion is to write horror and thriller stories.
Marlie enjoys the outdoors as a dirt biker, hiker, angler, and avid reader of horror, but her biggest obsessions are the color green and collecting dragons and her nirvana is a green dragon.

When she's not writing, you can find her hanging out on social media and outdoors Idaho.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I've been dreaming and writing since I was young. There came a point in my life when the stories needed to be written down. I don't control the stories. They control me. They come to me and swirl in my brain like opalescent soap bubbles, bumping into my everyday thoughts and absorbing them, so that all I have left are the stories. Growing bigger and more persistent, until I can't do anything else but write them down.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
For me that would be the thrill of that first draft. It's messy, cluttered, and poorly stitched together. But it's there, it's real. You can print it out and read through it, cringing at all the flaws you see. Yet, like a proud parent, looking at it and thinking, "Soon, little one, soon your rough edges will be smooth. Your halting speech will be more eloquent. Your diamonds will be revealed." That's the greatest joy right now.
