Invernesian Yvonne Marrs (1982-present day) has loved writing for as long as she can remember, moving to the London area at the age of 19 to pursue her dream of becoming a published author.
Yvonne graduated from UHI (Inverness College) with an HND in Administration and Information Management, a set of skills she puts to good use to organise herself and her work – especially as she has her own publishing company, WTSMP Publications.
Currently Yvonne has three fictional series – the ‘When The Sax Man Plays’ series, the ‘Football Crazy’ series and the ‘Aiden Lewis’ octet. With her early sporting pedigree – Yvonne was a Scottish National Judo player in her teens – it was only natural for Yvonne’s interests to merge.
Yvonne dreamt up the idea that formed the “When The Sax Man Plays” (WTSMP) series after falling in love with saxophone music, and being inspired by Leona Lewis’ dream X Factor win. To throw an ordinary person in an ordinary job, with an extraordinary talent into superstardom is the story behind WTSMP.
The central character, Jason Bottelli is such a person, although we soon discover he is far from ordinary! If you like your fiction easy going, entertaining, enthralling and heart-warming, you’ll fall in love with the musical romance that is the WTSMP series.
However, if fictional music isn’t your thing, Yvonne’s “Football Crazy” series follows our central character, Aiden Lewis, as he rises through the football ranks. From club player to International sensation – right through to his management career, leading England into the World Cup and then his brother’s local team, the London Giants, as the series progresses.
Aiden’s story continues with Yvonne’s new series, The Aiden Lewis Octet.
From December 2016, Yvonne’s first NaNoWriMo novel “Inexorable” is available to download.
You will also find Castiliano Vulgo – a fictional work on 16th Century London life written in two parts using both Elizabethan English and Modern English.
All of Yvonne’s fictional books are available to download on Kindle.

In the Summer of 2017, Yvonne joined forces with fellow sufferer and music man Joshua Francis to raise awareness of invisible illnesses like CFS, Anxiety, Depression, Fibromyalgia and others. Yvonne has published an eBook of 50 work pieces, from which Joshua chose two and created beautiful songs from.
