    About Maria McKenzie


    1. I was a librarian for several years, and librarian, of course, equals book lover I enjoy curling up with a good book when not writing, or daydreaming about a new novel to write I m a sucker for a good love story, and live on a steady reading diet of romantic suspense, thrillers, historical fiction and non fiction, and biographies.I ve always been a daydreamer, but didn t enjoy reading until I discovered Nancy Drew at age 10 As for writing, I never thought I d actually pen a novel I m not a talker, so how could I ever fill up a book As a quiet person, I internalize a lot And later in life I discovered that internalizing can create some wonderful stories Being in an interracial marriage I m black and my husband s white , I enjoy exploring the topic of interracial multicultural romance in our nation s past and writing tales of forbidden love.Mixed race romance from decades gone by is emotionally explosive, providing heart wrenching conflict, as well as incredible pain Those elements combined create amazing stories Love transcends all boundaries If two hearts are meant to be together, they ll find a way, regardless of circumstance I graduated from Wittenberg University with a degree in English, then received a master s in Library Science from Atlanta University While working as a librarian in North Carolina, I met my husband Our marriage inspired my novel Unchained One day I thought how sad it would have been if we d fallen in love 150 years earlier and couldn t have married as mentioned earlier, he s white, I m black I kept thinking what if, what if, and eventually Unchained came into being, but I turned it into a trilogy because the story kept going on and on Essie Mae Washington Williams s memoir Dear Senator provided the idea for The Governor s Sons Ms Williams is the African American love child of South Carolina Senator Strom Thurmond After reading her story, I wondered what would have happened if a southern governor fathered a son by a black woman, and that son grew up to become a civil rights leader.I live in Cincinnati with my husband and our two sons I m a foodie, love old movies, history, museums and antiquing I m also into fitness and enjoy running During my morning runs I can come up with some great story ideas, if I m not listening to a book Book junkie that I am, audio books are an addiction

    1. Written by the same author as the "Unchained" trilogy that I just finished but not as good. This one involves a man who inherits a plantation and falls in love with a light-skinned slave girl. Made the argument about the pros and cons of slavery as it was viewed at that time.

    2. I always learn a lot of history reading Maria McKenzie's books. And it is always interesting and gives me a new point of view of the antebellum South. It is obvious she did a lot of research for this book. I stopped and looked up a lot of things she mentioned--and learned even more history! Her characters were well-rounded and the book kept me turning pages!
