Marissa Clarke 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.

Also writes YA for Penguin USA and Entangled Publishing, LLC as Mary Lindsey

The Cooling-Off Period: Handling Criticism Effectively

Photo from DodogSo, I recently finished another round of revisions on the first book in my new romantic comedy series from Entangled Publishing. The revisions were slight, but that has not always been the case. Sometimes, a publisher will ask for huge, sweeping changes--like, this-book-sucks-so-start-all-over changes.

And that's when I step back to cool off.

My dad had a favorite saying that I'm Read more of this blog post »

Three Day Fiancée by Marissa Clarke
"I received this book from Entangled publishing and NetGalley in return for my honest opinion.

I don't know how I even keep doing it, but the books I read are always the second book in a series. And of course, I haven't read the first book.

Three Day Fiancée by Marissa Clarke
"Delightful!
What can I say, I am a sucker for the faux fiancée trope.
You know going into it that there will be a "deal," then shenanigans, secrets, and juicy repercussions.
And Caitlin and Taylor's three-day journey did not disappoint!

“How did you know the dog was a boy before you read the tag?”

Looking up at him with her cinnamon-colored eyes, she stated very matter-of-factly, “Boys have penises.”

At that moment, Michael was very aware that he, himself, was a boy.”
