  • The Book Cellar 32 South Section Street Fairhope, AL, 36532 United States (map)

***In addition to her event with us at Page and Palette on Jan. 18th at 6:00pm, she will also be in Mobile, AL speaking earlier in the day at 1:00pm at West Mobile Public Library (5555 Grelot Rd, Mobile, AL 36609). We hope you will swing by at either location and see her!***

Her most anticipated novel yet, The Only Woman in the Room (January 15, 2019)is a powerful, illuminating historical fiction about Hedy Lamarr. Hedy Lamarr’s marriage to an Austrian arms dealer, her escape from the rising Nazi party, and her rise to fame as a screen star are just the beginning. She kept a secret more shocking than her heritage or her marriage: she was a scientist. And she knew a few secrets about the enemy. She had an idea that might help the country fight the Nazis…if anyone would listen to her. 

A powerful novel based on the incredible true story of the glamour icon and scientist whose groundbreaking invention revolutionized modern communication, The Only Woman in the Room is a masterpiece. Marie herself is a dynamic, engaging speaker, touching on her thorough research on Hedy Lamarr and painting a vivid portrait of the historical period.
