More About the Author
Shelli Marie was born and raised in an urban neighborhood in Portland, Oregon. She currently resides in Arizona with her four children.
Shelli Marie has always been an avid reader, with her main interest being urban fiction, because she could relate to it. "With a good book you can get all the hot and steamy stuff along with a great plot, not to mention, you can put any face you want on the characters."
In 2012, Shelli began to take time out to write, something she hadn't done since she was in grade school. Although it was a great challenge for her, she was anxious to chase her dreams.
"Even without a college education, I was determined to write, edit and publish my own material."
The writing style Shelli Marie possesses is quite different from most Urban Fiction Authors. When she pens her novels, she takes portions of her life and the lives of her closest friends, combines them and adds some fire, to create exceptional stories.
The love for a good 'take me away' book is why Shelli Marie continues to write. She keeps it juicy, but ensures an easy flow for the most challenged readers.
"If I can just encourage one person to read an entire book, then my job is accomplished!"
Although Shelli Marie originated as an indie author, she signed with Leo Sullivan of Sullivan Productions, LLC in July 2013.
Her Books include: Meesh, Myself and I, Dangerously Loving Meesh 2, Dangerously Loving Meesh 3, Meesh Unleashed, Rose City Chic 1, 2 & 3. Backstabbing Bit**es, and Payback Bit**es. Now Shelli Marie has gone on to start her very own Publishing Company, "Rose City, Ink, LLC". With the assistance of Teruka B, they have slowly been making their dream a reality. They have already released four books under their label: Rose City Chic 3, Loving My Husband & Yours Too, Cliche' (With Marina J) and Honey Love (Teruka B & Shelli Marie). They have new titles dropping monthly. This list includes: Just Me & You (Shelli Marie & Teruka B), Loving Mr. Wrong (Passion P), Ink My Heart (Shelli Marie & Jason Hooper), A Bytch Named Karma 1 & 2 (Teruka B), Crazy Chica, and Loving My Husband & Yours Too 2!
