Bookouture signs bestselling crime author Mel Sherratt to write romcoms as Marcie Steele

Well, the secret is out – and now we can reveal just who is Marcie Steele!

Marcie is the pseudonym of bestselling thriller writer Mel Sherratt and we’re utterly delighted to be welcoming her to the stable of Bookouture authors with her first romantic comedy, Stirred With Love.

Keshini Naidoo, Senior Commissioning Editor at Bookouture said:

I’m thrilled that Mel has decided to explore her lighter side and sign with us for her Marcie Steele novels. I was captivated by Stirred With Love on first reading and we quickly snapped her up for a three-book deal. Marcie’s romcoms are as utterly gripping as Mel Sherratt’s crime fiction and we can’t wait to introduce a fresh raft of readers to this new star of women’s commercial fiction.

Stirred With Love is being published by Bookouture in September 2015, with the second Marcie Steele book, That’s What Friends Are For following in December 2015.

Thanks so much to everyone who took part in the #WhoIsMarcieSteele? campaign on Facebook and Twitter this week.  We hope you had as much fun as we did!  And we’ll be announcing the lucky winner of the Kindle Fire on Monday 10th.
