About Marty Ambrose

Marty Ambrose has been a writer most of her life, consumed with the world of literature whether teaching English and creative writing at Florida Southwestern State College or creating her own fiction. Her writing career has spanned almost two decades with eight published novels for Avalon Books, Kensington Books, Thomas & Mercer, and now Severn House. During the last year, Marty has become increasingly interested in combining historical memoir and women’s fiction, which became her latest novel, Claire’s Last Secret. It takes place in both Florence and Geneva, where Marty researched this past summer, and spans two eras played out against the backdrop of nineteenth-century Italy. This novel builds on Marty’s background as a Romantics scholar and is her first historical mystery, marking a new literary direction in her writing for Severn House (Fall, 2018). She loves telling a story—especially if it’s a Florentine conspiracy that unfolds in a Downton Abbeyesque setting.
