Marlayne Giron is a wife and mother living in Orange County, California. She currently works full time and enjoys cooking for her family every night, scrapbooking, making high teas, and entertaining.

...

At the age of 22 (In 1982) Marlayne was inspired to write The Victor by a line in an Amy Grant song called: “Fairytale” (from her Father's Eyes album). The particular verse in the song which inspired the idea was: “two princes wage the battle for eternity but the victor has been known from the start”. The verse made her imagine an evil “Baron” in black armor and knight in shining armor crossing swords over "maiden in distress". She wrote the story in her free time at work on an IBM Selectric typewriter and at home on a Smith Corona Portable.

Renee Vincent Great to connect with you on Goodreads, Marlayne! I look forward to reading your reviews.

Linda Atnip Hi Marlayne,

So glad to connect with you & read the inspiring story behind your publication! Well done!

I would like to invite you to check out my latest, "Conversations with Mr. Kiki" - it's a memoir that tells the story of my former dog's adventures in heaven as he has related them to me.

Best wishes,


Linda


Penelope Marzec Thanks for the friendship. :^)


Marlayne Giron Hi Beth - I released my one and only book The Victor last April and have no other WIPs. My focus right now is to get the book into public schools as English Curriculum and I am making some headway. My local school district wants to launch an author's corner with local authors (me being the first) to speak to the library media specialists and the students. Since it took me almost 30 years to get it published, I'm just concentrating on getting the word out right now.

I created my own book trailer and it is posted both on goodreads and on my book website if you'd like to take a peak. I'm actually quite proud of it.

Hope to hear from you again soon!

Beth I'm writing the first draft of the second manuscript of my Mandy Tanner river ranger mystery series. The first one, WICKED WHITEWATER, will be released in early 2011 by Midnight Ink. How about you?
