Marlene Riggs has been an avid romance reader since she was a teen. It’s safe to say, without telling her current age, that’s a very long time. When she was ready to jump into the romance writing pool, she decided to write the kind of romance she likes to read—stories that are not too naughty and not too nice. By day, Marlene is a Program Coordinator for a state agency. By night, she’s a writer and a dreamer. Publishing her own romance series is a truly a dream come true.
