Entering the world of writers

I have always been interested in writing, but it wasn't until I worked at a Natural History Museum, that I had the chance to develop my love for writing. I'm interested in writing about the supernatural events that abound around us and somehow tying it in with the natural events that we are all familiar with. I have just finished my first novel, book one of the trilogy, and right now I'm in the process of looking for an agent. It is a supernatural romance and the idea came about after reading an upsetting account of human trafficking. I began to volunteer and advocate for Unicef and advocate for Somaly Mam. I wanted to help the victims caught in this horrible practice, but it wasn't enough and I soon found myself questioning the theory of good and evil. Well this was the fuel that lit the fire and the desire to write was all consuming. I had the best time writing the first book, and have already started the second of the trilogy.

I'm interested in learning what events inspired others to write.


  1. Hi Marie-- I would be interested in reading your books! I am currently writing my dissertation on the movement against human trafficking in Russia, so it is a topic I am familiar with.

  2. HiDenise. The ongoing background of book one deals with the horrors of human trafficking. I was surprised to find out how widespread the business of human trading has spread when I began my research. When I tried to educate my friends about this, some of them were skeptical that this was even happening. The book has a heroine who is recruited by a specilized group of angels into fighting the growing evils of the world.

  3. Finished my synopsis, racking my brains with the Query letter.
