About Me

Whether you’ve made it here via Google or from a link on someone else’s website, I’m happy to connect!

Who am I?

I’m Marty Mayberry, and I write both young adult and adult novels. 

In Adult, I write sweet or spicy romance featuring cocky beta heroes (is that a thing?) and feisty heroines. 

In young adult, I write strong girls who  discover who they are and what they want in life, while kissing cute guys along the way. 

I’m represented by the awesome Jessica Watterson of the Dijkstra Agency. 

When I’m not researching ways to take down killers with everyday household items , or encouraging my characters to kiss, I work as an RN/Clinical Documentation Specialist (which is a fancy title that means I help physicians document the correct terminology so my hospital gets paid). 

I live in New England with my retired Seabee Chief husband, three grown children, not enough cats, and a spunky Yorkie pup who makes me laugh. Here’s a picture of Lily (isn’t she sweet?):

I’m a member of YARWA, a PRO member of RWA, and a four-year PitchWars mentor.

My young adult sci-fi won the YARWA’s Rosemary Award for Speculative Fiction in 2015.

My New Adult Urban Fantasy came in second place in the 2017 Rosemary Award, in the NA Category.

I was a double ’18 Golden Heart® finalist in short contemporary and romantic suspense.  

My romantic suspense finaled in the ’18 Tampa Area Romance Author’s TARA Contest.

I’m the Secretary for Maine Romance Writers.
