Welcome Marie and thanks very much for joining us on atime2write.
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…

My Note: Marie Lavender is a phenomenal writer of romance fiction. She is the consummate professional, and I am quite fortunate to have made her acquaintance. I find romance and horror to be strangely similar actually, first by way of structure. The hiding of things, whether for the purpose of seduction or suspense, plays similarly. Also, the biggest motivation for both genres is love, as romance stories tease with what you can’t have and horror tales toy with what you are terrified to lose.
So Marie, I am proud to have you visit The Author’s Graveyard, and I would ask that you pick a plot. Put up a marker. Etch something into the stone!

I just found this review on Goodreads! Yay! 🙂
by Marie Lavender (Goodreads Author)
When Marie Lavender said that this was not your ordinary vampire story she was not playing. This book took me through every emotion I own. Before I could finish this book I was calling and texting my friends to recommend this book. From the awesome attention to detail to the dips and turns I love this book. Officially, I am stalking all blogs and emails for the release of the next book. I am truly looking forward to the second book in this series.

Fun interview on Rachael Stapleton’s blog!
Monday, January 12, 2015
Today I’m interviewing bestselling author Marie Lavendar who prefers a gel pen to a keystroke and a journal page to a computer.
When asked if she had any quirks she admitted that while she doesn’t write in the shower, she does find herself working on scenes in there. I had to agree…this happens to me all the time.
Desiree Edwards has a problem. She’s been attacked, kidnapped and forced to get along with a vampire of all things. It’s something right out of the story books she reads, or her worst nightmare. But, sometimes he’s not the monster he appears to be. He seems so humanlike that she can’t help it when her emotions betray her, when her body betrays her. To make matters worse, she finds out more about herself than she ever wanted to know.
She was unlike any other…
Alec has a problem…
