About The Author
Marisa Deshaies can be summed up in one simple phrase: her life is a way with words. A lover of stories since before she can remember, Marisa cannot imagine life without books. She is a professional editor and book reviewer with too many books on her hands but never enough to keep her satisfied. Her favorite genres to read and review are contemporary and historical inspirational fiction, romance, and literature. However, Marisa always is searching for new authors and genres because the power of a story can never be reserved to one category. Marisa holds an M.A. in professional writing from New England College but her heart belongs to the University of Delaware, where she graduated with a B.A. in English, concentration in professional writing. She currently is an editor for Castle Gate Press and WhiteFire Publishing, and a book reviewer for Luxury Reading, Straight Off the Page, Litfuse Publicity Group, Christian Bookseller’s Association, and Happily Ever After. Marisa is a member of the ACFW, for which she serves as an area coordinator, an author interviewer, and a judge for the First Impressions and Carol Award contests.
