Meet the Author

Born and raised in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, Marissa Dobson now resides about an hour from Washington, D.C. She is a lady who likes to keep busy, and is always busy doing something. With two different college degrees, she believes you are never done learning.

Being the first daughter to an avid reader, this gave her the advantage of learning to read at a young age. Since learning to read she has always had her nose in a book. It wasn’t until she was a teenager that she started writing down the stories she came up with.

Marissa is blessed with a wonderful supportive husband, Thomas. He is her other half and allows her to stay home and pursue her writing. He puts up with all her quirks and listens to her brainstorm in the middle of the night.

Her writing buddies Max (a cocker spaniel) and Dawne (a beagle mix) are always around to listen to me bounce ideas off them. They might not be able to answer, but they are helpful in their own ways.

She love to hear from readers so send her an email at or visit her online at

    Not Bad

    Review Copy Provided by the Author

    Winterbloom by Marissa Dobson is a delightfully sweet romance that tells the story of Gunnery Sergeant Jordan Sheppard, who while serving in the Marines, lost a very close friend. Jordan blames himself for his friend’s death because his friend was taking his place on lookout since he was incredibly sick. Jordan should have been killed, not him – at least to his way of thinking. Trying to deal with severe PTS and on his way to visit his friend’s widow, Jordan gets caught up in a massive snowstorm. He finds shelter at a close by bed and breakfast, and while he is there, discovers that life is about more than pain and guilt.

    Chloe Frost is now the sole owner of Winterbloom Bed and Breakfast now that her grandmother has passed away. While she is preparing to renovate, a massive snowstorm hits and while she figures on a quiet and peaceful few days of snowed in bliss, she is surprised when a strange man shows up at her doorstep.

    I found Winterbloom to be a sweet and delightful little romance. Though short, the characters are fairly well developed and the story, itself, pulls the reader in. I truly enjoyed the way Jordan develops within the story and the relationship that blooms between him and Chloe. Ms. Dobson does a wonderful job of creating visual scenes that allow the reader to feel as though they are right there within the story. I do want to say that things seemed to develop quickly within the story – perhaps a bit faster than relationships/problem solving would actually occur in “real life”. I know this is a short story of fiction, which may be the reason for the quick unfolding of the events. Also, I am not sure if the author was shooting to make this a work of erotica or a sweet story of romance. The only reason I question this is because the voice of the story is sweet and caring, however when the love scenes occur, words typically used within erotica are used, which kind of broke the flow of the story for me. I do enjoy erotica, so that wasn’t the issue; the words just seemed out of place with the overall general flow and tone of the story.

    Overall, I enjoyed Winterbloom and look forward to reading more by Marissa Dobson!
