About Marian

Marian grew up in south Louisiana in a small community south of New Orleans, Louisiana. Her love for the written word began reading books while sitting on her grandparent’s front porch swing. The stories allowed her to meet interesting people, took her to far away places and challenged her to think beyond her own world. 

 

Her desire to write about the south keeps her grounded in her roots and the hope that one day she can do for someone what many of the authors of her childhood did for her.

 

Marian has a Bachelor of Science degree in physical therapy and an accounting certificate from the University of South Alabama. 

 

She writes from the Colorado home she shares with her husband. 

 

This bayou girl is glad to be back living in the mountains. She doesn't miss sweltering  humidity and swarms of mosquitoes. But still loves her Southern roots, boudin, says y’all, and can make a killer roux. That's why you'll find a Louisiana/Colorado connection in each of her books.
