About Me

 Hi, I'm Marianne. Thank you for taking the time to click through to my About page.  

I write the Castlewood High Tales, a retold sweet romance series, under the pen name Mary-Kate Thomas. 

I have plans in the works for another reimagined YA series with a different pen name.  

If you'd like to keep up-to-date with my book releases, please consider subscribing to my monthly newsletter, The Story Scoop.

A little about me... I'm a mom of four - two daughters, two sons - and my husband and I have been happily married for over twenty years.  I spend my days wrangling our latest pair of bird dogs, working part-time in my lovely corner of SW Ohio, and writing stories.  

I'm a lifelong reader who always carried a book or two in my bag everywhere I went.  These days, I just keep five or six books loaded to my Kindle account to read on my iPhone. 

I believe there is no better magic than a good story!
