More About the Author

Marnie L. Pehrson is a best-selling author, speaker and online publicist who helps Light Bearers deliver messages that lead people out of bondage into freedom in all aspects of their lives. She is the creator IgnitePoint.com and SheLovesGod.com. Marnie is also the mother of 6 and the author of 23 fiction and nonfiction titles.

Marnie has been writing books since 1994, but she didn't branch into fiction until 2003. Largely influenced by her friend and colleague, Marcia Lynn McClure, Marnie took her first attempt at fiction with a story about one of her favorite ancestors. She pitched the idea for "The Patriot Wore Petticoats" to her distributor in June of 2003, and had the novel virtually finished by September. A labor of love, the story of Marnie's 4th Great Grandmother, Dicey Langston, came in flashes of inspiration that flowed into a story that is now required reading at Langston Charter Middle School in Greenville, SC.

Once Marnie dipped her toe into fiction, she never wanted to leave. Other Southern novels followed including "Waltzing with the Light," "Rebecca's Reveries," "Beyond the Waterfall," "Angel and the Enemy," "In Love We Trust / Second Sight," "An Uncertain Justice" and two titles in the Granite LoveNotes series, "Hannah's Heart" and "Savannah Nights"

Marnie is an avid enthusiast of family history. She integrates elements of the places, people and events of her Southern family and heritage into her historical fiction novels. Marnie's life is steeped in Southern history from the little town of Daisy that she grew up in (the setting for "Waltzing with the Light") to the 24 acres bordering the famous Chickamauga Battlefield upon which her family resides. The Chickamauga Battlefield inspired "Rebecca's Reveries," "In Love We Trust" and Marnie's BarnesAndNoble.com best-seller "Angel and the Enemy" (December 2006).

Marnie continues to write non-fiction inspirational as well - focusing on helping people live true to themselves and their divine purposes on this planet. Two of her recent nonfiction titles: "Trust Your Heart: Transform Your Ideas Into Income" and "Trust Your Heart: Building Relationships That Build Your Business" both became #1 Amazon Mover and Shakers.

This book was written about my husbands relative, Dicey Langston. Our children and grandchildren loved reading about who and where they came from!

Our family has been enjoying this book immensely - especially since the heroine is one of our daughter-in-law's ancestors! Even without that, it paints a good picture of life in South Carolina during the Revolutionary War - I suspect it was a very different experience than it was further north. And, it shows that there have always been tough women in the family!

This will be a family keepsake for years to come - and a good lesson for our young grandaughter and other women who will become our descendents.

Thank you Marnie, for making our Christmas 2009 special.

This book is a very romantic biographical historical novel. I think I would have liked it to be less romantic.
