Maryanne Mackenzie Wells is a Texas attorney turned fiction writer. She's the author of four active book series: The Undead Bar Association (supernatural suspense seasoned with history and a dash of law), Tales of My Mother Road (fairytales inspired by the states of Route 66), The Hearts Trilogy (sci-fi with a steampunk vibe), and Ghostly Mostly (young adult fiction from the Undead Bar Association realm). Her hallmarks are conducting meticulous research and crafting relatable and inspiring characters. Maryanne believes in making every word count. If you like to skim, these books are NOT for you. When Maryanne's not busy researching or writing she's teaching, using her business and legal background to help future business leaders tackle the world. Occasionally, Maryanne shakes off her pen name to appear in a local theater production or ballet. Her last name, Wells, was inspired by her role in a local theatrical production of Dracula. Maryanne's drink of choice is coffee.
