by Marian Lanouette
Marian born and raised in Brooklyn, New York is the seventh child of ten. At the age of sixteen her family moved from New York to New England. As a typical teenager, she felt her life was ruined and took to journalizing her feeling and this new life. The journal helped
her realize how easily she had adapted to the change. Although, she did miss her cherished friends terribly; she's thankful, they are
still friends today. The four of them refer to each other as the cradle to the grave friends.
Unbeknown to her parents, at the age of five she started reading the New York Daily News story about the murdered nurses in Chicago
and the investigation. Marian followed the story every day as authorities rushed to solve the brutal crime. It had caught her attention and
her imagination. To this day she stills checks her closet before going to sleep. Marian thinks it was on that day the mystery lover was
At the age of eight she wrote every day, whether it be a poem, a short story or in her journal. An eighth grade assignment got her published.

The Beach her first official published work is still her favorite though much longer than four lines. It was the nun who submitted the poem for her to the local paper. Thus, the writer was born.
Marian's first book If I Fail, A Jake Carrington Mystery will be released on September 7, 2012; and will be followed up in January 2013 with the second book in the series, Burn in Hell, A Jake Carrington Mystery. Each book's a mystery with romantic elements, because to quote Marian, "Life is both mysterious and romantic."
Marian resides in New England with her husband, where she is currently working on the third book in the series, Mated for Life, A Jake Carrington Mystery.
