I am Marin McGinnis, a writer of Victorian era romance. I have lived almost half my life in a tree-lined, unabashedly liberal suburb of Cleveland, Ohio.
I have been married to the same great guy for over 20 years, and have one tween-aged son. We all live together in a drafty old house with our two standard poodles, Larry and Sneaky Pete.
Although I've been a voracious reader ever since I could make sense of words on the page, I came fairly late to writing. I dabbled with writing a mystery in my 20s, but didn't start writing in earnest until after I discovered historical romance (namely, Julia Quinn and Eloisa James) in my late 30s. While my very first book will languish under the bed, the next book, Stirring Up the Viscount, won two contests in 2013 and was published by The Wild Rose Press in January 2015. The next book, Secret Promise, will be released by The Wild Rose Press later in 2015.
I am a member of the Romance Writers of America, as well as its Northeast Ohio Chapter.
