Marilee's Books


I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, living and writing Christian romance novels in the Western United States.  I began writing novels several years ago.  I love striving to create wholesome, uplifting stories.  Below is a list of a few of my favorite things, which have positively influenced my writing and my life. 

Favourite authors & books: 

Jane Austen: Persuasion
I love how Ann Elliot stuck to her convictions and never wavered. 

Charles Dickens: Little Dorrit
I love Amy Dorrit.  I want to be her.  Alas, I'll never have her patience. 

Lucy Maude Montgomery: Blue Castle
So romantic. 

Louisa May Alcott: The Inheritance
Also so romantic. 

Charlotte Brontë: Shirley

I love how Shirley cauterizes her own wound when the mad dog bites her, then asks Louis Moore to stay with her in case she dies of rabies.  Also very romantic. 

Favourite symphony: 
Franz Liszt: Les Preludes
I think that's what will be playing in the sky during the Second Coming.  Grand and glorious. 

Favourite solo:
Claude Debussy: Arabesque No. 1
So beautiful.  So is Suite Bergamasque.

Favourite colour: cobalt blue
Probably because I love the stone.  But I do love every shade of blue.  It's the color of lakes, oceans, sky.
