Marlene Sanchez was born in New York and raised in
Miami. Her family and friends are an important part of her life, a constant
inspiration, and keep her motivated to succeed in pursuing her dream. She has
had a passion for writing since her ninth grade English teacher put it all into
perspective for her. “Write how you speak and write what you know.” She credits
her teacher every chance she gets for giving her a love of writing!
Marlene writes mystery/suspense with a sprinkle of
romance. Her love of crime and legal dramas, and of course The Godfather, has
opened her eyes to the wonderful world of mystery/suspense. The action and
thrill is what keeps her fingers gliding across the keyboard, as her brain
explodes with ideas about the next unfortunate victim.
She is a strong, independent woman because her
Cuban mother raised her right. Her main characters embrace that same attitude;
strong Cuban American women that take no “caca” from anyone.
Marlene has a couple of books under her belt, with
several in the works to release in 2014. She hopes to someday be a
household name, at least in her own home if nowhere else. She just wants her
sons to be proud of her, that’s reward enough… Yeah right, she wants the fame
and fortune too.
