Multi-published author Marianne LaCroix lives in the American south in the land of cotton and mint juleps. She’s an active member of the RWA in the GothRom, Passionate Ink, and First Coast Romance Writers chapters. She’s had several recognitions for her writing including a Romantic Times BOOKClub Reviewer Choice nomination. Her tastes run to the alpha male with a dark streak in the form of a vampire, shape-shifter or other tortured-soul type. When not writing or creating a piece of digital art, Mari can be found with her twin toddler girls and her husband of eleven and half years.
