PERSONAL BIOGRAPHY OR "HOW I BECAME AN
AUTHOR"

Marly Chance, a dreamy bookworm turned professional writer, lives in a small
Tennessee town where truth is always stranger than fiction.  She believes in
happy endings, chocolate, and good friends.  Her writing career began in the
fourth grade with poetic thoughts in little notebooks.  At age eleven, and a
great deal of bad poetry later, she read "Gone With The Wind" and fell in love
with Rhett Butler.  She was young.  He was fictional.  It didn't last.  However,
her love affair with romance books was permanent.

She eventually switched from notebooks to a computer and continued to write
for personal pleasure.  Her family encouraged her to submit her efforts to a
publisher but she remained skeptical.  After reading the draft of "Oath Of
Seduction: Seducing Sharon," her husband demanded quite strongly that she
submit the manuscript SOMEWHERE.  Her attempts to explain the tough
realities of getting published fell on deaf ears.

Finally, she agreed to try, mostly to prove her point.  Because the books from
Ellora's Cave Publishing were her favorites, (seven drafts later) she submitted
the manuscript to them.  EC contracted for the entire trilogy.  "Oath Of
Seduction: Seducing Sharon" released in January of 2002. It was honored as a
"Top Pick" by Romantic Times Magazine and won the Reviewers' Choice Award
for Best Small Press Futuristic Book of 2002.  Now, many years and books
later, she is still dazzled at her good fortune. She is one of the bestselling
authors at Ellora's Cave Publishing.

Her husband never lets her forget  that he was right (for once), and she never
stops being grateful for it.  Of course it proves her point as well.  Happy
endings are all around us in real life, too.  With hard work and a little luck, the
possibilities are endless.
