About the author:
Marian L. Thomas is a native of Chicago with a passion for the words that reflect the issues that face women today. However, the concept of putting her thoughts into written form wasn’t realized until her second year in high school when she wrestled with the thought of writing a book she then called What Color is Jazzmyne. In fact, 20 years would pass before she finally debuted a more refined version of her original concept, calling it Color Me Jazzmyne. It was just a few years prior to this that she completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Communication, graduating Magna Cum Laude.

Marian now resides in Atlanta, Ga., with her husband and their spoiled, but playful dog. She enjoys writing short stories that have full impact and is currently working on her second novel.


  1. I find it interesting that the title (I love it!) can provoke a desire to read the book!

    The synopsis adequately entices one to head over to Amazon and check this book out! Stick one in my ever-growing shopping cart, and also read the chapters you provided a link to.

  2. It is a catchy title. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the book. It's not my usual murder mystery style book, but it does make you want to read more.

  3. It would be a great spelling of the name for a girl, wouldn't it? I mean, Jasmine is okay as far as names go...I like "different" or original names - like Mason :)

    But's GREAT! I just LOVE it! (Said that already, didn't I?) LOL!

  4. I'm with you. I like original names and it is a pretty name.

  5. Thank you so much Mason Canyon for posting this blog.

    Also thank you Crystal for stopping by and loving the name. I chose it because the main character is a Jazz singer so out came Jazzmyne.



I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
