Marie Michelle Coleman is the author of Bespoken, the first book in The Nightangel and Daydreamer series. She’s had a romance with the written word since she was old enough to turn the pages of her first book. Her love of literature led her to a career in librarianship where she was quick to realize tracking down information under tight deadlines was her idea of a good time. She was once called a reference goddess.
Her love of the supernatural is most likely a legacy from her grandmother. She had a reputation for knowing how to tell a good scary story in the dark, had a riveting near death experience, and sat down to watch Dark Shadows every weekday afternoon come hell or high water for years during its original run.
A propensity to daydream through class didn’t result in Marie becoming an honor student in high school or college but it did throw her imagination into overdrive and teach her how to keep it there. Marie has been writing books in her head for years and figured it was about time to get some of it down on paper. She has always had a fascination with vampires and angels. Turning on the paranormal blender was a natural next step.
As a former major law firm library director and Washington, D.C. area native, she brings her knowledge of the hyper-driven private law firm environment in the nation’s capital to the novel.
Today, Marie's work with the information professional community keeps her knee deep in research and information service trends, technology, digital resources, and social media.
Marie lives in the Washington D.C. area. She is addicted to iced tea, coffee drinks with caramel or mocha in the name, and staying up well past her bedtime. She swears there's no caffeine correlation there.
She believes in the power of a compelling dream, the therapeutic merits of loud music, and the benefits of always being in the middle of reading a good book. Marie has a soft spot for a good romance and likes to laugh. Jane Austen is her favorite author. She'll probably always be a little in love with Mr. Darcy.
She grows roses in her garden but no matter how hard she tries, they don't look anything like the ones in Casey's daydreams.
