Hi there. I’m D.M. Guay (aka Denise Marie). I write supernatural fiction. With my new series, 24/7 Demon Mart, I hope to put the fun back in fantasy and the comedy back in horror.
I’m an award-winning former journalist living in Ohio, a hobby urban farmer (you can’t beat my beets!), a painter, and a retired roller derby player.
My favorite things—besides books— are tiki bars, liquid eyeliner, 24-hour horror movie festivals, rock concerts, and most of all, people who make art, despite adversity, no matter what life throws at them.
I’ve really had to put that art and adversity thing into action for myself this past year, as I was diagnosed with stage 4 (terminal/incurable) kidney cancer on Dec. 29, 2017. It’s hard to make art when you’re fighting for your life, so I hope you’ll be understanding and patient now that my book release schedule has changed. Still, I haven’t given up writing!
Remember: Life is way too short, so make it count. Read good books, love your friends and family with all your heart, and never, ever turn down a chance to have fun. Plan for tomorrow, but don’t forget to live for today.
