About the Author
Just like Gillian Matthews, the heroine in her debut romance novel, The Reunion, Marina Martindale began her career as a graphic designer and artist, and several of her paintings have been featured in juried art shows. Over time, however, she discovered that writing was her true life’s passion.
“I love creating conflicted characters,” says Martindale. “I think they’re more like the people we meet in real life. I also like the complexity of romance. It’s an opportunity to delve deep into the human condition and try to understand what it is that motivates us to make the choices in life that we make.”
In The Reunion, Martindale draws her inspiration from some of her own real-life experiences. The story itself, however, is fiction.
“Not all of us are lucky enough to get to marry our true love and spend the rest of our lives living happily ever after,” adds Martindale. “I think many of us have someone in our past who we think of as, ‘the one who got away.’ We may stop and think about them from time to time, but have we ever really sat down and wondered what would happen, if, just by chance, we were to run into our long lost love? That’s the premise for 'The Reunion.' It’s a story of love, forgiveness, and second chances.”
Marina Martindale resides in Tucson, Arizona. In her spare time she enjoys photography, quilt making, and cooking.
