Marin Frederique, a romantic at heart, writes fiction that explores the many forms of love and its power to heal, restore, and transform the body, mind, and soul. This exploration is filtered through the prism of the beauty of the Bahamas and highlights the interwoven contributions of the many ethnicities that produce the bold tapestry of Bahamian life and culture. Fluent in Spanish, Frederique is particularly fascinated by the ways in which the proximity of her ancestral home to the southern United States and Cuba influences the lives of Bahamians, resulting in interesting relationships and compelling geopolitics.
Frederique divides her time between Washington DC and the Bahamas. The Lights of Home is her first novel.
