Jamie began writing stories about the man from Mars when she was six, and she never remembers wanting to be anything other than a writer. Everyone told her she needed a back up plan, so she pursued a Ph.D. in American literature, which she received in 1998. She started teaching writing and literature at Auburn University.

" That works. "
The Goddess's Choice by Jamie Marchant
"The Goddess's Choice is an epic fantasy that is not for the young (only the young at heart) as there are scenes in it which some readers may find disturbing.

The King is in his 90's, his daughter is in her teens. He wants her to choose a consort fo..." Read more of this review »

"Someone is wanting to give G.R.R Martin a run for his money I am telling you!

No dragons are involved in the story here, but I am talking more about the overall style and detailed writing. Though, we dod not have really specific time markers and I..." Read more of this review »
