Welcome to the literary world of Marion Marchetto

My literary world is full of quirky and eccentric characters. Come stroll along the pathways of New England (where I grew up and where I set my stories). Discover the secrets held dear by the characters I’ve created as they weave a rich historical tapestry.

The Gilded Era series of The Bridgewater Chronicles tells of the Newkirk family whose roots go deep into Boston and New York society. Stairway To My Heart tells of the founding of this dynasty; This Jaded Heart follows the exploits of their wild-child rebel Corinne (Birdie) Newkirk.  The third generation comes into its own in Teddy Blue as granddaughter Zena Hawkins goes to Hollywood and fulfills her mother’s dreams. This series comes to its amazing conclusion in The Bridgewater Legacy. These stories are very popular with Downton Abbey fans.

The Merline Madagascar Series (Hidden Secrets of 201 Atwater, Honeysuckle Hill, and Oak Cliff) follows a quirky house-whisperer who doubles as an interior designer with a flair for the historical. The newest series – Second Chance At Love – moves to those seniors amongst us who still have romance on their minds. Coming Home To Love is the first book in this series.

Stay awhile. Enjoy your visit. Return often. Bring along a friend or two.

P.S. I like to set my stories in real places with lots of history. As you wander between the covers of my books, see if you recognize any place that may have special meaning to you.
