Marianne Bayliss is a writer of sweet contemporary romances about finding once-in-a-lifetime love.

Her debut novella Unwrapping her Heart was a finalist in the 2020 Romance Writers of Australia Romantic Book of the Year (R*BY) awards and a finalist in the 2019 Australian Romance Readers Association for favourite small-town romance.

An ex-professional dancer, Marianne spins words into elegant love stories set in picturesque locations, and always takes time to soak up the scenery.

A rural Australian mum with two grown-up children, she is now learning how to parent a 30kg puppy, finding it similar to taming a toddler with extra-sharp teeth and poor language skills.

Marianne’s stories feature ordinary people finding extraordinary love. Spring over
