    If you had the power to control someone, would you?

    About Me

    Hi there!

    I’m Iris Marsh, a behavioral researcher turned writer. Because of my fascination with psychology, I always focus as much on my characters’ journeys as well as the plot. My YA fantasy debut novel Illuminated is no exception. It’s suspenseful and heavy on character development. Currently, I live in the Netherlands with my partner and cat.
