About this author

Mari Miniatt was born and raised in the north woods of Wisconsin. On a large farm in the middle of the woods. She graduated from University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point with a degree in communications.
After working in a variety of places; food service, factory, offices, she settled in on her life in retail. But on the side she wrote. Inspired by her father, who would longhand write every day. Mari would often have a notepad out whenever she could.
Mari currently lives in Syracuse, NY. Where she decided to take her writing from hobby to profession. She still works in retail, where she can be seen writing on her breaks and lunches.
She hopes that people find her books enjoyable and different.

Description: In Fledgling, Vincent leads the vampires to a great hiding spot. A place he was familiar with because he was a bootlegger during Prohibition. This story expands that part of his life for your enjoyment. If you want to share this work, I will allow you to as long as you do not change anything and credit is given back. If you want to do more with it, contact me a mariminiatt (at) and tell me what you want to do. I will be happy to discuss any ideas that interest me. When all the chapters are complete, I will gather them and release in ebook form only. I do have to say this. This is a story with adult themes and adult situations. If you are offended or are too young to be reading this, please don't. I would rather have you not read it, then send me a mean email after I warned you.
