Michelle Marcos. Miami Heat. Hemingway's Cats. English Socialite. Scottish Hero.
Curious? Please join me in welcoming encantador author Michelle Marcos! From her bio:
Michelle Marcos has finally reconciled herself with being thought eccentric. She lives with an unlucky number of cats and struggles with a debilitating Starbucks addiction. How a child of Cuban parents living in Miami could become such an Anglophile is still anybody'sguess. She graduated several centuries ago from the University of Miami with degrees in English and Education. Afterward, she spent several years being one of the "cool" teachers in a middle school, and had a brief but illustrious acting career playing roles like Lusty Housekeeper, Death, and (perhaps prophetically) Author.
Kim: Oooooo, Miami ! It attracts many British tourists and expats .... so it is appropriate that you are an Anglophile! Tell us your favorite sight, sound, and smell of Miami.

But this was only a start. After all, a story of romance needs two people. So I began to wonder where this socialite, Serena Marsh, would find her equal. Sadistic writer that I am, I decided I couldn’t make it easy for her. Her special someone would not be found in the ballrooms of London . She’d have to be plunged into the unfamiliar Highlands of Scotland to find her Mr. Big.
|Mr Big and Mr. 24 in kilts|
Michelle: The Regency period is the most interesting time, in my opinion. Politically, socially, culturally, there was a lot happening. (And the fashions in England and France were just beautiful.) But in my research, I learned that Scotland was becoming quite advanced in many aspects. It was the birth of the industrial revolution in Scotland , and factories were springing up in the major cities. Roads were being paved, and there were incredible innovations in medicine. It’s a mistake to regard Scotland as being only sheep pastures and hay fields.
Kim: What's next for Michelle Marcos?
