Mar Delaney is a lesbian romance pen name for Layla Lawlor, who also writes fantasy and science fiction under her own name, straight paranormal romance as Lauren Esker, and contemporary romance as Liz Harman (co-written with her sister). She sometimes worries that she may be juggling too many pen names, but everyone needs a hobby collecting something.

She lives on the highway in Alaska, north of Fairbanks, enjoying nearly 24-hour sunshine in the summer and -40F darkness in the winter. (For certain values of enjoying.) She is also an artist and cartoonist who formerly ran the local newspaper’s layout department and is now a full-time writer.
