As a child, Marie Kenward enjoyed reading adventures about swashbucklers like Robin Hood, Peter Pan and the Three Musketeers, and cheering on superheroes like Superman and Batman. Her parents were avid science fiction fans, so she grew up watching TV series like Star Trek, Space 1999 and Battlestar Galactica. She fell in love with Luke Skywalker and cried when ET went home. And to this day, she swears she saw a UFO when she was 12. As far back as she can remember, Marie loved to write. She loves romance novels because of the escapism and the happily-ever-after endings, and likes to include paranormal elements in her works to add a surreal flavor.
