Welcome, Marie Higgins to Dishin' It Out


How many women dream of their perfect ‘hero’? As a girl, I would always daydream of what I wish would happen to me when it came to love. Funny, how none of my daydreams happened the way I’d wanted, but it was fun to dream nonetheless. Now that I’m an author, I still daydream, but about my stories. That’s how I came to write “Dreaming of You”.

Katelyn Palmer never believed any harm could come from using her college crush as the hero in her first romance novel—the novel that jumpstarted her writing career. However, when Shane Hunter storms into town, demanding to meet the writer who used his identity Katelyn is confronted with more than her long, silent emotions. If Shane takes her to court for invasion of privacy, her career would be over.

Shane doesn’t know how to act when his ex sister-in-law accuses him of having an affair while he was married—and then shows him the romance book as proof. Now he wants to know who this author really is and why she used his name, and most of the events in his life for her story. Desperate to know the truth Shane befriends Katelyn but he does not expect to be attracted to her, even more unexpected is the joy he finds watching his twins fall in love with the woman who is stealing his heart, too...

The daydreams aren’t the only part of my story that happens in my real life. Most of the characters you will read about are names of my family.  Since this story is about a close-knit family, I thought it only right to include those I love so much.  One other thing in my story that I used from my life is Christmas traditions. Seeing Christmas lights is a favorite of mine and my grandkids. I plan on carrying this tradition for MANY years to come!

My story is a Christmas Inspirational romance – so be prepared for that ‘feel-good’ feeling you’ll have after finishing my story! J

About the author:
Since Marie Higgins was a little girl playing Barbies with her sister, Stacey, she has loved the adventure of making up romantic stories. Marie was only eighteen years old when she wrote her first skit, which won an award for Funniest Skit. A little later in life, after she’d married and had children, Marie wrote Church roadshows that were judged as Funniest and Best Written. From there, she branched out to write full-length novels based on her dreams. (Yes, she says, her dreams really are that silly)

Marie has been married for twenty-six years to a wonderful man. Together, they have three loving daughters and several beautiful grandchildren. Marie works full time for the state of Utah, where she has lived her entire life. Marie plans to keep writing, because the characters in her head won’t shut up. But her husband smiles and pretends this is normal.
