writing, she enjoys baking, scary movies, rock concerts, and reading
books at the beach. She lives in the lush forest of Northeastern

Bernadette Marie has been an avid writer since the early age of 13,
when she’d fill notebook after notebook with stories that she’d
share with her friends. Her journey into novel writing started the
summer before eighth grade when her father gave her an old
typewriter. At all times of the day and night you would find her on
the back porch penning her first work, which she would continue to
write for the next 22 years.
In 2007 – after marriage, filling her chronic entrepreneurial
needs, and having five children – Bernadette began to write
seriously with the goal of being published. That year she wrote 12
books. In 2009 she was contracted for her first trilogy and the
published author was born. In 2011 she (being the entrepreneur that
she is) opened her own publishing house, 5 Prince Publishing, and
has released contemporary titles and has begun the process of taking
on other authors in other genres.

1. What is your favorite part of writing? Seeing the characters’ reactions to life’s big moments.
2. Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? The importance of family and friendship.
you recall how your interest in writing originated? It was one of those

romance was my genre.
4. Give us an insight into how your writing day/time is structured? I write during my lunch hour at work.

defeat it? I struggle with getting a good daily word count because my
internal editor demands I go over and over what I’ve written before

to take the advice of my publisher and give myself permission to spew
whatever comes out (and really, that’s where the really good parts come
from). Probably the thing that helps most is a deadline—I write much
faster under pressure.
