Marina Martindale

Gadabout Salon Spas

Just like Gillian Matthews, the heroine in her debut romance novel, "The Reunion," Marina Martindale began her career as a graphic designer and artist. Over time, however, she discovered that writing was her true life’s passion.

“I love creating conflicted characters,” says Martindale. "I think they’re more like the people we meet in real life. I also like the complexity of romance. It’s an opportunity to delve deep into the human condition and try to understand what it is that motivates us to make the choices in life that we make.”

Martindale draws her inspiration from her own real-life experiences, as well as those of the people around her. The stories, however, are fiction. Martindale resides in Tucson. In her spare time, she enjoys music, traveling, photography, and cooking.

Her current book is "The Stalker."
