My name is Marianne Leininger. I am a writer blessed with a beautiful and understanding family (especially on those nights when I serve my famous ‘make-your-own’ special.) I love the mountains, and take my ‘office’ into the canyon near my home as often as possible. I hate laundry, but talking aloud to my characters makes it bearable. So, my dog thinks I’m nuts, but there are worse critics out there–ones who cannot be appeased with raw hide chews.
I created The Newest Novel as a place to spotlight debut authors. Let’s learn about what inspires them, their writing habits, their good days and bad. And by doing so, we’ll build a strong community of support for them as they launch their first books into the literary world!
