" Through the Tears was written through out the years. I have a large collection of poems I have written throughout the years.

My son, Michael Delaney Donovan was killed in a traffic accident on Jan 12, 2003, the loss of Michael devastated our family so. He had just celebrated his 30th birthday on December 18, 2002.
My son was an incredible person. He lived his life to the fullest. He was robust and loving. He had a heart warming smile and a great personality. He was such a beautiful gift and tolose him turned our whole world upside down. It was a few months later that my husband (Santa) and i decided to try to make something positive come out of the loss of such an energetic, funloving, and beautiful person. it is my sincere hope that people reading my books of poetry gain a sense of faith, and hope and realization that everything is for a reason. although i know i will never see that smiling face again i can still thank God for letting me have him to begin with. i can also be thankful for 30 beautiful years. i am so appreciative that i was the one blessed enough to have Michael in her life.

To award-winning author Marie Donovan, writing romance is a dream come true after so many years of avid reading. She got her fill of tragedies and unhappy endings by majoring in opera/vocal performance and Spanish literature. During those years of singing about operatic heroines who inevitably met bad ends, and reading about political prisons and horrible civil wars, she devoured romances whenever she could.Her first attempt at romance fiction was a gothic-type short contemporary where the teenage heroine actually ran into the dark and stormy night to escape her abusive father. That manuscript currently lurks in the depths of her hard drive, waiting to be cannibalized for a future book.After taking off several years from writing fiction, Marie won a bookstore gift certificate and took it as a sign to get started writing romance again. She promptly ordered several how-to books on writing romance novels and read them until they were dog-eared. Fortunately, as she smartened up about writing romances, so did her heroines. Harlequin's wonderful Blaze line inspired her to try her hand at sensual romance. Her manuscript won several Romance Writers of America chapter contests and sold to the Blaze series in January 2005.Marie has worked for a large suburban public library district for the past eight years as both a cataloguer and a bilingual Spanish storytime presenter. She graduated magna cum laude with two bachelor degrees from a Midwestern liberal arts university and speaks six languages. When not writing, she enjoys reading, gardening and yoga.
