After I published the final Luke and Jenny book in 2010 I wanted to switch genres and write for more adult readers. However, I'd built my brand as a children's book author, and adult material simply isn't suitable for younger readers. So, I created a pen name, Marina Martindale, to distinguish my adult fiction and market my books for a different audience. I published my first Marina Martindale novel, The Reunion, in 2011. Since that time I've written five other novels, and I'm currently working on novel number six.
