About the Author
Darlene Marshall is an award-winning author of historical romance featuring pirates, privateers, smugglers, and the occasional possum. She loves working at a job where business attire is shorts and a shirt festooned with pink flamingos and palm trees. Marshall lives in North Central Florida, a convenient location for putting the convertible top down and researching sites of great historical significance, which also happen to also be at the beach and serve mojitos.
She shares her home with her husband, a fellow University of Florida graduate who proudly claims to be her biggest fan. Her adult sons keep hoping she'll get a contract that includes an overseas booksigning tour so they can carry her bags.
Marshall has worked as a broadcast and print journalist, news anchor, radio station owner, obituary writer and a few other odd jobs. She became a novelist because there were fake people in her head having adventures, so it was either write it down or check into therapy. She's never been a pirate, but the day is not yet over.
Her books have been published in English, German and now, Estonian.
