Louise Marley

I write romantic suspense and romantic comedy - and sometimes I mix the two. I live in Wales, surrounded by fields of sheep, and have a beautiful view of Snowdon from my study window.

My first published novel was Smoke Gets in Your Eyes, which was a finalist in Poolbeg's Write a Bestseller competition. I've also written articles for the Irish press and short stories for women's magazines such as Take a Break and My Weekly. I've worked as a civilian administrative officer for the police and moonlighted as a writing tutor for Writing Magazine.

My books have sold over 130,000 copies and have spent a total of 7 months in the Amazon top 100 (UK). Three of my books have been #1 bestsellers in romantic suspense and Smoke Gets in Your Eyes also made it to #1 in romance, #16 overall.

In addition to my own books, I've contributed to the hugely popular Sunlounger anthologies. I'm a member of the Romantic Novelists Association, the Society of Authors and, of course, Novelistas Ink!
