A Little About Me
marcia king-gamble

I fell in love with romance after reading my first Mills and Boon book at age six. When your motherís a school teacher you learn to read at an early age. Of course having no television in the home helped as well. Reading fueled an overactive imagination. It still does.

You see, I was born on the island of St. Vincent in the sunny Caribbean. It’s a heavenly place where ocean and sky are the same mesmerizing blue. Sands are both white and black. St. Vincent has a dormant volcano and is also home to the oldest Botanical Gardens in the Western Hemisphere. The Grenadine islands (think Bequia, Mustique, Palm Island ... lifestyles of the rich and famous) are shared with Grenada.

Degrees in psychology and theater were obtained in the United States which has been my home for most of my life. I made a comfortable living as a travel industry executive while I moonlighted as a reader for Harlequin/Silhouette. That’s where my first venture into writing romances began.

Since 1998 I have been published by Kensington, BET and St. Martin’s Press and Harlequin. Recently, I’ve been Indie publishing. Now I get to write what I want to write and pick my book covers. Yea!

 

Other interests? Ah, yes there are many. Puttering around estate sales, enjoying a good bottle of wine, dancing through the wee hours, traveling when and as often as I can, and anything involving the outdoors.
