Darlene Marshall longs for a little more swashbuckling in her life. To fill that void, she writes of piracy, smuggling and romance in the 19th, a good excuse to abandon the office and take day trips with the convertible top down to hotbeds of intrigue and romance like Fernandina, St. Augustine, and Micanopy.
Marshall is an alumna of the University of Florida (Go Gators!) and is the retired owner of a rock radio station. She's been a reporter and editor in television, radio, and print, and worked at a drug treatment center doing education and prevention.
She shares her Florida home with her husband of 30+ years and an elderly dachshund.
Marshall's novels are available in ebook and print, and in German and Estonian. Seriously.
