Taking The Cacti For A Walk

If I ever write an autobiography, I have the perfect title for it. It would be called Taking The Cacti For A Walk.

Marie Ferrarella

Born in West Germany, arrived in the U.S. at four, I began writing when I was eleven. I began selling many years after that. Along the way, I acquired a Masters in Shakespearean Comedy from Queens College in N.Y, a husband and two kids (in that order)—the dog came later.

My first romance was bought by Second Chance At Love November of 1981. The road from there to here has a hundred and thirty-seven more sales to it. I’ve been published by Silhouette, Harlequin, Zebra, Harper, Bantam and Berkeley. I’ve been fortunate enough to have received several Rita nominations from the Romance Writers of America Association over the years, with one win for Father Goose (in the Traditional Romance Category). I’ve also been nominated several times in various categories by Romantic Times Magazine. I hope to be found one day—many, many years from now—slumped over my computer, writing to the last moment. But before then, I would dearly love to write a successful screenplay. My goal has always been to entertain.

Entertainment Weekly 2015 named me the fifth most prolific romance author of all time—and I have since moved up to the fourth position, having published 296 works.

One reason is that I’ve been exceedingly busy upping my book count (presently at 297 titles sold, 286 of which belong to the Mother Ship—Harlequin). Another… Read More

Books for the Year’s Most Romantic Month . . .

on February 2, 2016
Writerspace - Let's Talk Books icon.indd

With the heart-shaped boxes of bonbons at the candy shop, the lacy valentines on the drug store shelf, and the arrow-wielding cherubs on TV, you’d have to be a hermit on a very high mountaintop not to know February is the month for sweethearts. So it only goes to reason that the month that gave… Read More
