More About the Author

I'm a public relations consultant in Atlanta, a member of Romance Writers of America and Georgia Romance Writers (GRW), and a recipient of the GRW Chapter Service Award. I am a member of the 2016 Roswell Reads Steering Committee. I've won writing awards in the following categories: Single Title, Suspense Romance, Paranormal/Fantasy, and Novels with Strong Romantic Elements. I write humorous women's fiction (Stones, a coming-of-middle age novel, Significant Others, and The Widows' Gallery, published by The Wild Rose Press; and The Edger, which I cowrote with my sister, award-winning artist, Sharon Goldman); Romantic suspense/thrillers (Under the Moon Gate, also published by The Wild Rose Press, set in WW II and modern-day Bermuda; Sixth Sense, the first book in the Psychic Crystal Mystery series by The Wild Rose Press); Homecoming Homicides (Book II in the Psychic Crystal Mystery Series); and Killer Cruise (Book III in the Psychic Crystal Mystery series); Historical Romance (Destiny: A Bermuda Love Story, The Wild Rose Press); Someday My Prints Will Come (Fantasy); and paranormal short stories, TWB Press (A Choir of Angels, Follow an Angel; The Stand-in Bridegroom, Dead Mix and The Files Death Forgot).

I graduated from The University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism. Born in Miami, Florida, I live in Roswell, Georgia, with my husband.

What's unique about my writing? I try to inject humor into everything I write, from romantic suspense to women's fiction. I like to laugh and I think my readers do too. I tend to feature older heroines, because let's face it, we're not getting any younger.

While I'm not writing I enjoy reading, traveling, going to the movies, eating Italian food and hovering over my two daughters. I studied in Florence, Italy, for six months during my senior year in college.

I blog on the 22nd of each month at Savvy Authors.

The Edger is jointly authored by Marilyn Baron and Sharon Goldman. I've always wondered about the whole idea of co-authoring. Whether one writer comes up with all the ideas and the creative stuff and the other sits there crossing the t's and dotting the i's. Or whether they'd take a chapter at a time. One of the interesting things about reading this book was trying to find the voice of each individual author, but this reader for one couldn't find any of the joins.

This book is a funny, clever, compulsive read. (And it has a great title too, methinks, very distinctive.) Its populated by a (mostly) likeable bunch of characters who are real human beings with real human flaws. I liked Nick, the artist hero, The Edger himself more than the protagonist, Alexandra, but perhaps that's because Alex's early appearances seem mostly concerned with moaning and shopping. The villains of the piece, the errant husband and his buxom girlfriend, Bitsy, were also well drawn. Mark is "a funny and charming boy" who's perhaps too handsome for his own good. But I even found myself with some sneaking sympathy for Mark, the husband, when it was revealed he was a victim of the recession.

I have to admit this is the first 'Suspense Romance' I've read at this length, but I found the book a breeze to get through. It's kind of like Michael Connolly meets chick-lit and this is the lovechild! Like The Edger's sketches, the book "draws you in whether you wanted in or not." The book was very well constructed and lavishly styled. The plot was intriguing and kept the reader guessing. My particular favourite moment was the climax of the first half of the novel, at the art gallery. This was a scene of revelation for more than one character and the author(s) handled the multiple viewpoints spectacularly well.

"The pieces of the puzzle finally fit together as her life began to fall apart." Marilyn Baron, The Edger

The hardest thing about writing a book review is not giving away too much of the story. That's especially the case with The Edger, a women's fiction novel by Marilyn Baron and illustrated by Sharon Goldman. Let's just say that any book opening with a drawing of a rabbit isn't going to be what it seems. Just ask Alice.

The Edger opens with heroine Alexandra (Alex). She's a 40-year-old artist in denial that her marriage and art lack passion. She compulsively fills the void in her life with stuff that turns to clutter, both physical and mental. Who better to show her the worthlessness of the stuff and propel her to rediscover her love of painting than a homeless yardman who was also once a world-famous artist? The Edger of the title, he is named both for a tool of his trade and for the fact that he now lives on the edge of society. The complication is that the Edger, Nick, was a professor with whom Alex once nearly had a relationship.

So, you think that's it. We're going to see these people fall in love. The author does do an admirable job of unfolding the relationship between Alex and Nick without damaging the morals of either character. As much as Alex is stirred by new-found passion, she stays true to a marriage about which she's only slowly learning the truth. Too, the writing in Alex's point of view, often gently humorous, is endearing. In a moment of revelation, Alex comes to see her life in terms of the accumulated stuff around her: "A food processor that blended a homogenous mix of unfulfilled dreams. A food processor that didn't inspire passion."

But, dear reader, the expertly handled relationship is not all you're going to get.

What a fun read! Has something for everyone: love interest, mystery, a little CSI action, art history, and social awareness. Must read; you'll be glad you did (I am!).

like this book a lot; maybe one of the reasons is that I live in the town the story takes place in and some of the characters are familiar to me. Also think this would make a very good "chick flick". It has interestng twists and turns.

This is really a fun, fast read, perhaps more aimed at women than men, but the plot is a bit different from many of the chick books out there. It's very evocative of the area in which the action takes place and many of the characters might live in your neighborhood. I enjoyed it!
