Sitting at the Saint-Roch Train Station with tears in her eyes, Meg contemplated where her life had gone wrong. She was at a point in her life where she felt abandoned by God after the last remaining person who truly loved her, died. Now with a baby on the way, she had begun to lose hope that the future, she knew the Lord had promised her was never meant for her.
Marshalee Patterson was born in Kingston, Jamaica. She has always had a love for reading. It was while attending the Merl Grove High School that she discovered that she loved writing stories. Some of her favourite novels were written by Charles Dickens and Victor Hugo, as she found she liked the true to life stories that we all can relate to.
She never saw herself as wanting to be a writer until she took vacation in Italy back in 2003 and came back with the idea of writing a love story from her trip but mid-way into the book, the Holy Spirit changed the direction of the story and turned it into one about faith. It was then she knew it was her calling. She gives credit to being a Christian as it is the Holy Spirit that she says guides her in writing her books.
She writes Christian romance with spiritual warfare books, where most of her characters are created from her own experiences, with a few exceptions and this she said helps her to write with a lot of heart and love.
She hopes that through her novels, she can inspire people of all ages with the message of hope in Christ and showing them that through him comes deliverance.
Her goal is that through this medium, she can give readers a better knowledge of how to be victorious against satan’s tactics and exposes some of the devices he uses by creating stories, where readers can better understand situations and root causes, of demonic doors opening in our lives. Through spiritual warfare prayers that she herself have been using and saw results, she hopes that they too can learn to stand strong against the devil themselves too.
She is a lover of nature and the tranquility of it. She finds nature refreshing and peaceful. She loves different cultures, especially the Spanish, which she feels makes us learn to appreciate ours a little more in areas where we have been ungrateful or unappreciative. She loves salsa music very much and dances it well too. She is a proud Jamaican.
