Author Appreciation #19


So as per the usual it's that time of the month again and I could not think of a better author to have on my blog appreciating them for all of their awesomeness on my birthday month than Marilyn Phillips!

What can I say about Marilyn? I love her like I love pie and reading which is an awful lot. She's been one of the bestest friend since I started blogging and she means the world to me.She is the only person who is a constant commenter and she is the only one who does my meme TBR Tuesday. She honestly rocks my world and I love her to death!!!

When I found out Marilyn was an author I checked out her books and well...I fell in love with her amazing books too. Honestly Marilyn is the best!!!!

Marilyn's Books:
Mystery Falls Series:
Blurb:
Secrets. Lies. Deception. For the past six years, Samantha Hunt has lived with the belief that the untimely death of her parents was the result of an unfortunate accident—that by the cruel hand of fate, she had been left an orphan. But it was a lie, a terrible lie told to her by those who wanted to keep her in the dark. And the truth... when revealed, will change her life and haunt her forever.

Suddenly plagued by a series of events which find her in danger and in need of a savior, Samantha is repeatedly rescued by the mysterious and elusive Shadow—a stranger who seems to know more about her past and the tragedy which befell her family, than she does. Drawn to him despite the antagonism she feels whenever in his presence, Samantha soon discovers that Shadow is not what he appears to be. Determined to learn his true identity and why he has come to Mystery Falls, the small town in which she has spent all of her seventeen years, Samantha not only uncovers the secrets he refuses to share, but also the truth about her own past. A truth which forces her to acknowledge that things are not always as they seem, and sometimes, not even those close to you can be trusted.

Resolved to seeking justice for the unwarranted death of her parents, Samantha embarks on a journey which brings her perilously close to her own demise. Can Shadow use his angel powers to save her yet again, or this time, will he be too late.

Blurb:
After spending months apart due to an enforced separation, Samantha and Shadow are finally reunited. However, it is a reunion which may be short lived. As more secrets of the past are revealed, Samantha not only discovers her true heritage, but also how heavily intertwined it is with Shadow’s. Suddenly finding themselves on opposing sides of a feud which started long before either one of them was born, they struggle to remain together in a world which seems determined to keep them apart.

Neither one of them wants to enter the conflict started by their forefathers, but unfortunately, there may not be a choice. With Samantha’s true identity now known in the world of the angels, she has become a pawn in a deadly game of revenge. Desperate to hold on to the one person who truly matters to him, Shadow must find a way to protect Samantha... or risk losing her forever.

Hi! My name is Marilyn and I live on the outskirts of Melbourne, Victoria (Australia). I am married to my first and only love, Richard and we have two beautiful children.

From the moment I could first read, I loved books. Every week when my Mum and Dad would take me shopping, instead of asking for toys like most kids, I would request a little Golden Book. As I grew older and my reading skills improved, I graduated to books like The Wishing Chair and The Magic Faraway Tree. Enid Blyton was, without a doubt, my favourite author during my primary school years.

When I entered High School, I spent many hours in the library - not so much to study, but rather, to scour the shelves for books which I would then borrower and devour. Often, in one sitting.

It was during this time, when I began to create stories in my mind. Stories which I would relay to my best friend adnauseam. One day, she suggested that I should write them down. However, having reached the final two years of High School, and with my focus very much on my studies, I never managed to commit them to paper.

It is only now, many years later, with the children at school and hours of uninterrupted time, that I have finally managed to fulfill a life long dream of putting my thought into printed words. For those of you who take the time, I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them.
