Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
At the age of 22 (In 1982) Marlayne was inspired to write The Victor by a line in an Amy Grant song called: “Fairytale” (from her Father's Eyes album). The particular verse in the song which inspired the idea was: “two princes wage the battle for eternity but the victor has been known from the start”. The verse made her imagine an evil “Baron” in black armor and knight in shining armor crossing swords over a "maiden in distress".

The Victor was released on April 14th of 2009 and many doors have opened up for her reach readers. On a special note, Marlayne completed her own personal circle of inspiration by receiving a copy of The Victor autographed by Amy Grant herself.

Marlayne Giron is a wife and mother living in Orange County , California .

Amy Grant has a copy of The Victor and autographed mine!!!

Thirty years ago I was in my early 20's and working as John Styll's secretary at Contemporary Christian Music Magazine (CCM) when it was known as the Christian version of Rolling Stone magazine in Orange County, CA.

John was the editor and I was his receptionist/administrative assistant. At the time he hired me, the magazine had just changed its look from newsprint to a more professional-looking glossy magazine with Andre Crouch gracing the cover. During the course of my employment… Continue
