Mary Lindsey is a multi award-winning, RITA® nominated author of romance for adults and teens. She lives on an island in the middle of a river. Seriously, she does. When not writing, she wrangles her rowdy pack of three teens, two Cairn Terriers, and one husband.

Inexplicably, her favorite animal is the giant anteater and at one point, she had over 200 "pet" Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches. The roaches are a long story involving three science-crazed kids and a soft spot for rescue animals. The good news is, the "pet" roaches found a home... somewhere else.

Represented by Kevan Lyon of the Marsal Lyon Literary Agency

Also writes under the pseudonym Marissa Clarke

Thank you so much, Tessamari. Shattered Souls was written as a stand-alone book, but there is certainly material left open for a sequel. Right now, I'm finishing a gothic YA based on Edgar Allan Poe's poem, "Annabel Lee," for my publisher. After that, we'll consider a potential sequel or companion book to Shattered Souls.

I'm thrilled you enjoyed Shattered Souls. Thank you so much for the comment.

Mary

Hi, Natasha. Goodreads is a networking and review site. It is a place to talk about books, not a place to read them, from what I understand. My book is only available from booksellers and my publisher and cannot be read on any websites.

Thanks, Sydney. The Penguin Art Department did an amazing job with my cover. I couldn't believe it when I saw it the first time. Thank you for the comment. Sorry it took me so long to respond. I just now saw it for the first time. I'm super familiar with all the features of Goodreads yet.

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Mary. You seem like an interesting person, as well as an accomplished author, so feel free to tell me more about yourself and perhaps we can grow to become even greater friends. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's. My first novel is an unusual murder mystery entitled: FORBIDDEN STEPS.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed
