Author Interview – Marie Lavender

Here’s a new interview about my children’s fantasy book!

Johnny Oddsocks

I’m really pleased to announce that today’s author interview is the fabulous Marie Lavender!

Marie is a multi-genre author, with 21 books, spanning romance to fantasy to children’s books. Marie is well known amongst writing circles for running a fantastically supportive blog, showcasing many of her fellow authors.

I hope you enjoy her interview where you can find out what Marie likes to read, why she writes and which of the many genres she writes in is her favourite!

Hi Marie, so what was your favorite children’s book growing up, and why?

Hmm…that’s hard to narrow down. I’ve always loved reading books. I guess it could’ve been a cross between The Bobbysey Twins series and The Boxcar Children book series.

What is your favorite children’s book to read to children, and why?

I don’t have children, per se, just fur babies! 😉 But I took a children’s literature class in…

Marie Lavender – Interview – A Little Magick

An interview on When Angels Fly! 😉

When Angels Fly

A Little Magick - final cover

Please welcome Marie Lavender to my blog. Hello Marie, have a seat and we shall chat for a short while. 

Please introduce yourself to those reading this blog post.

Hello! Nice to visit your blog, Mary! I am an author of twenty-four books in various genres. I’m from a small town in the Midwest. I am a thirty-something woman and I hope to marry my fiancé sometime this year. I love shopping, reading and writing!

Has writing always been part of your life and when did you “know” that it was time to start writing your first book? 

Yes, I’ve been writing fiction in some capacity since I was nine years old. I think I always knew I wanted to be an author.

In college, I had two stories published in a university anthology. By 2010, I started the indie publishing journey, and in 2011, I submitted my first historical…

Thursday Trilogies and More: Marie Lavender and Magick!

Get a sneak peek of my future lighthearted romantic fantasy, Magick Sunrise, book three of the Magick Series, here!

Living the Dream

Hello and welcome to Living the Dream. Today, I would like to highlight one of my favorite authors, Marie Lavender. One of the most difficult things for an author to do is write a series of books. The key is keeping the reader hooked from one book to another. J.K. Rowling mastered this with her Harry Potter books and I believe Marie is on her way to doing the same. Read on to learn more!

Magick and MoonlightBlurb for Magick & Moonlight, book one of the Magick Series

Genre: Lighthearted Romantic Fantasy

Messing with free will is always a bad idea…

Ethan Hamilton moves to a lazy little town in Oregon, hoping to escape his demons. But, instead he discovers a woman dancing nude in the moonlight. This woman who claims she is a witch dazzles him with her sensual presence. He thinks she’s crazy, but what if she’s not?

Living the Dream

2017 BadgeWelcome to the thirteenth day of the 2017 A to Z blog challenge.  I’m later than usual this morning because I slept in and had family visiting yesterday–long story short, we had a great time yakking, laughing, and drinking lots of wine.

Today’s letter is M, and in keeping with my decision to introduce you to authors you may not have had a chance to meet before. Today’s author is Marie Lavender,  and I’ll be showcasing her new books, The Magick Series

MM is For Marie and Magick

Let Marie tell you about herself.

Marie LavenderI have been writing for over twenty-five years. From the tender age of nine, I knew I wanted to be an author. I’ve spent most of my life trying to fulfill that dream. I began publishing in 2010, and was fortunate enough to be discovered by Solstice Publishing when they picked up and published my first historical romance novel, Upon…

Q. You have over 19 books to your name, which is fantastic. When did you first publish your work? Was it self or traditionally published?

It was actually self-published at first. I published my first book in 2010. It was a literary fiction/poetry anthology titled Express Café and Other Ramblings. I went on to publish two subsequent literary fiction/poetry anthologies, all of which will be revised and re-released as Miss Lavender’s Anthology of Ramblings. So, look for that as a future release.

Q. So some of your work is traditionally published – how did you manage to get picked up by a publisher or agent?

Though I tried self-publishing, I held onto one manuscript for dear life, reserving it for traditional publishing. In 2011, I began submitting the manuscript to literary agents and publishers. In August of…
