About Marianne Spitzer
I was born in Wisconsin and lived there until I was eighteen. Then I spent eight years in Washington state and California before returning to Wisconsin. I love eerie places and books. I began with a love of Nancy Drew books and as I grew I found H.P Lovecraft, Poe, Agatha Christie, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle among others. When I am not writing, I am reading or watching sunsets. Gypsy Spirits is my debut novel and the first in the series of three "spirit" books. My first supernatural mystery, THE LETTER, was released in 2013. Since then I have added eight more Kellie Conley mysteries. I decided to try my hand at a cozy mystery and released Heavenly Corners, the first in the Annie Ryan series. I took a step outside the box with Kathryn's Justice, a thriller. Western Historical Romance is my newest genre and I have added five books in the Mail-Order Brides of Gentle Falls series and took part in a few multi-author projects. I am sure my muse will guide me into a new story plot soon.
