This is my first venture writing under the Marilyn Jeulin nom de plume, however, I’ve published three other books as Marilyn Almodóvar.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is Henry and Gracie. It’s a book about friendship and falling in love with your best friend. It was inspired by people that I knew in College.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I don’t know about unusual, but I’m very superstitious. I use the same pen and notebook to write ideas for stories. Then when I’m ready to start writing on the laptop, I make sure that I have the same hot beverage and music playing in the background.

I have a huge list of authors, but I’ll narrow it down to four, Anne Rice, Stephen King, GRR Martin and J.K. Rowling.
