About the Author
Jacqueline Firkins is a writer, costume designer, and lover of beautiful things. She's on the fulltime faculty in the Department of Theatre & Film at the University of British Columbia where she also takes any writing class they'll let her into. When not obsessing about where to put the buttons or the commas, she can be found running by the ocean, eating excessive amounts of gluten, listening to earnest love songs, and pretending her dog understands every word she says.

Splendidly entertaining love story that delivers an abundance of clever banter and triple-digit sexual chemistry.

Marlowe Banks, Redesigned
is a spectacular book that starts with a look and ends in a young woman finally finding herself. Perceptive, heartfelt, and perfectly romantic, Marlowe's story is an uplifting celebration of how failure never has to define us. The romance is sizzling hot, the commentary on the drawbacks of exposure in the age of social media is on point, and the writing is the perfect mix of humorous and poignant. But my favorite thing about Marlowe Banks, Redesigned is the setting: it's clear that Jacqueline Firkins knows the world of costume design, and she wove millions of fascinating details into a uniquely sensory experience. A sparkling, charming novel everyone should read!
