Marne Ann Kirk grew up wild, running and exploring the vast high deserts and mountains of Idaho, Montana, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado with her family as a child. She loved making up stories and, well, lied about just about everything. Thankfully, she grew out of the lying stage...now she calls it story-telling.
If she wasn't making her own adventures, she was reading. Life, and the need to eat, got in the way of writing for a time; but in 2002, Marne Ann quit the day job, became a full-time, at-home mom, and began writing for money...
She's earned about $75.00 since 2002. Thank God for great, fully supportive husbands!
And she cannot resist strong, sexy heroes...
Marne Ann has a wonderful husband (her own strong, sexy hero) who keeps her laughing, six amazing kids and now two fantabulous grandsons who rock her world and keep her on her toes. She has a Shih-Tzu, Socrates, who keeps her lap warm when she writes, and two other dogs (her kids' dogs, actually) to drive her nutty. And a cat with one tooth who keeps the mice at bay outside. She loves to write. She loves the mountains, but in a perfect world she would spend a few months a year on the beach. Preferably in Mexico or Jamaica.
Places to find Marne Ann:
What inspired you to write about Gods & Goddesses?
I love all different kinds of mythologies, and find their differences and similarities fascinating. When I was a little girl and watched Clash of the Titans...I was hooked on the Greek stories of the heroes, the Gods, and the Goddesses. It wasn't until college, though, when I took some mythology and religion in literature classes that I learned there was so much more, so much I didn't know about religions across the world and how they shaped societies, how they evolved... Well, they say write what you know or what you'd like to know about. I like to learn about, and then play with Gods and Goddesses.

Authors Choice: Ask the readers something!
I can read any paranormal, so long as the story is good. It doesn't matter to me if it's a demon, angel, god, creature, vampire, human...To me, saying the vampire has been done to death is like saying the human has been done to death. Likewise, I enjoy a fantasy romance as much as I enjoy a paranormal romance (which kind of explains why I write both genres, right?) But my question to the reader is this... what draws you to a new author? What makes an author stand out for you, makes you want to initially take that chance with a new author? And if you get hooked with an author, are you willing to venture into areas you don't usually read, or do you simply want more of the genre you like? (I hope I'm making sense, lol. I do appreciate your answers so much.)
Now, for the characters...
If you could take your partner/spouse anywhere in our world or yours
where would it be?
Merric: I would take Teagan to my world, where she rightfully belongs, the land of the Tuatha de Danaan, the Goddess Danu's realm. Teagan still resists the idea of leaving the human realm, but I'll convince her.
What would your partner/spouse say is your biggest weakness?
Teagan: Merric is so fricken stubborn. You would not believe. But I know how to get around his little issues. Or I just do my thing, anyway. If he doesn't like my gate, he doesn't have to swing on it. Right?
All Fomorian Hells are about to break loose on earth, making human souls the daily special, if the Tuatha de Danaan can't stop it.
Teagan, a Celtic demi-goddess hiding from her destiny in small-town Colorado, wants nothing to do with her mother's forgotten realm or the drama of a battle of the gods. And Merric is forbidden fruit she's too smart to taste.
Merric, leader of the Tuatha de Danaan warriors, has other plans. Teagan holds the key to salvation, for both him and their worlds, whether she wants to or not. He'll do whatever it takes to convince her of her duty.
But can he find the key to her heart?
