Mariella Poole lives on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca.

The Key was her first foray into novels; the story came to her one day while she was cleaning the galley of the boat she was working on, although it took a couple of years to finalise the story.

She has spent many years writing short stories and very long letters; as well as occasional articles on more practical subjects for national boating magazines. 

When not writing, Mariella can be found indulging her nautical obsession, being slave to a naughty house rabbit, reading, cooking, watching Stargate SG1 & Saving Hope and Michael Shanks' back catalogue, and enjoying the Mallorcan sunshine, along with a bit of photography, bike-riding and other random nonsense.
