Author Biography

I have always been an avid reader.  My early memories were of my mother taking me to the library and allowing me to check out as many books as I could carry.  My favorite books were checked out numerous times and read over and over.  I would use my Barbie dolls to play out the scenes in books (such as Nancy Drew!).

I have written as a hobby for many years (probably since childhood).  I have written devotionals, autobiographical writings about having a severely handicapped, medically fragile child, about my mother’s Alzheimer’s, and other subjects that interest me.

I joke that I “cut my romance teeth” on the old historical romance books. In 2013, I started a blog to showcase wonderful writers. In 2014, I finally gave in to the characters in my head pleading for their story to be told. Thus, Emma’s Home was created.

I worked as a counselor in a high school and was involved in education for the past 30 years, until retiring in 2015.  I have been married to a wonderfully patient man for 35 years and have 2 adult, very supportive daughters.  When writing, my dog or one of my cats will usually be found in my lap!
I love to hear from readers, so please email me!

    Book Review

Reviewed by Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite

Coming Home by Maryann Jordan is a stunning entry in the Baytown Boys series, a perfect book for fans of romance and suspense. Readers are introduced to compelling characters, military men who come home to their roots, to rediscover the tranquility of their seaside town. All they want is to make life better for the most unfortunate of their brothers. Former FBI agent Mitch Evans gets entangled with Tori when one of her guests dies of poisoning. Mitch wants to find out the truth, but things change when he discovers that the poison might have been intended for Tori. Victoria Bradford is back home too, but she has business to do. She thinks running the Sea Glass Inn would be the most peaceful thing, but something more awaits her in her childhood crush. Readers are taken on a fast ride of romance as childhood friends reconnect and passions awaken.

This entry of the Baytown Boys series is beautifully written with prose that is as sensual as it is entertaining. The sex scenes are detailed and somewhat intoxicating, so it would be a fair warning to let readers know that it’s not for the “mild” reader. Maryann Jordan knows how to lead readers into the heart of human emotion. She builds tension in readers by creating suspense with shifts in subplots. Readers long to know what will happen next as they move from scene to scene. The plot is stellar work, fast-paced, and filled with many surprises for readers. This is one of the books I’d recommend for readers who love their romance to be sizzling.
