My Chat with Marie Harte

Hello and welcome!

My guest today is another of my fave authors whose books I enjoy reading… a lot.

Please welcome Marie Harte!


I’ve been writing as far back as I can remember. Interest in the written word, no doubt spawned by my English teacher father, continues to this day. I’m a voracious reader, gobbling everything from romance to horror to fantasy and more. I’m in love with the art of storytelling.

I majored in English from Penn State University, earning a B.A. in Liberal Arts, as well as a commission in the United States Marine Corps. Five years later, after serving as a communications officer, I left the service to focus more on family. After going through an assortment of jobs–the Marine Corps Reserve, IT representative, middle manager for a Fortune 500 transportation company–I stopped working to raise my children. During this period, I decided to stop dreaming and start seriously writing.

In December of 2004 my first story was published, and I haven’t looked back since. I currently have over a hundred titles with several publishers to include: Ellora’s Cave, Fated Desires, Loose Id, Samhain, Sourcebooks, and Totally Bound. I’ve hit both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists and am always on deadline.

I currently live in Central Oregon with my family, writing like a woman possessed and loving every second of it.

Do you have a nickname?
Slacker? Ha. Not really.

What is one word best describes you?

What makes you laugh out loud?
Seinfeld. Every time.

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I love the smell of eucalyptus. It reminds me of Seattle, oddly enough. When living in Georgia, I’d go to visit my mother in Seattle, and I loved it there. She had this eucalyptus scent in her house, and I loved it.

Favourite place to spend time in.
A coffee shop with a book in hand.

Is there a genre that you refuse to read?
I’m not a fan of inspirational romance. I tried once, and it just did nothing for me.

Writing! What started it?
I’ve always liked entertaining myself, so as a child I’ll tell myself stories so I would never be bored.

If you could choose another career what would it be?
I’d be a doctor. I’m fascinated with what the human body is capable of and how to fix it.

Audiobooks! Any plans to have any of your books in audio format?
Yes, I do have plans. But it’s slow going. I’d like to eventually have all my titles in print, ebook, and audio.

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
That it’s okay to have fun and enjoy life and love, and that everyone deserved a second chance at happiness.

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your books?
I write for myself first of all. But any woman or man over the age of 18+ who wants to read about snarky characters ending in a happily ever after? That’s who I’m targeting.

What is next in your writing?
I’m currently gearing up to write Lou’s story. He’s the fourth Body Shop Bad boy and the last in that series. Then I’ll turn to Hope’s story. She’s a Donnigan sibling. And her hero is a character I’ve been dying to write about forever. J.T.—Del’s brother (from What to Do with a Bad Boy).

Thank you so much for taking the time from your busy schedule to chat with me.
