There once was a young man, fiery by Sicilian and Cherokee blood, whose service in the U.S. Marines gave him the courage to win the love of the woman he most desired. He and this tall, blonde-haired, blue-eyed German beauty renounced their scrabble upbringing, that concrete box of city life-they were lured instead by country roads, nature's serenades, and untrimmed pastures.
To their daughter, Chance Maree, they offered arm loads of books from the library each Sunday, a college education, and the certainty that if she worked hard enough, that which she dreamed could be achieved. Accustomed as she grew to literary travels, Chance fled rural serenity to taste the complex textures of cities, work in executives positions for high-tech companies, earn a Master's degree, and travel the world.
Chance Maree is now a bootstrap novelist and story-telling enthusiast who gravitates towards upmarket fiction with a speculative slant. She has published three novels, ALEXIOS, BEFORE DYING, UNDAZZLED, and DARK MATTER TIDING. Her current project is titled, A PRINCESS AMONG THORN AND THISTLE. Chance's writing is eclectic. She strives for plots that twist and surprise. Chance has been transplanted to Texas by her astrophysicist husband where they live with three dogs and a native Texan, scorpion-killing cat.
