‘Baggy Pants and Bootees’ is Marilyn Chapman’s debut historical romance novel, though she is not at all new to writing. The Guernsey-born journalist found her first triumph at age fourteen, where she was published in a football magazine. At nineteen she became women’s page editor of her local weekly newspaper and later freelanced for national newspapers and magazines. Whilst bringing up two daughters, Marilyn worked in estate agency and recruitment, but still finding time for her writing. Her final dream remained: to publish a novel. Marilyn achieved this is February 2014 when ‘Baggy Pants and Bootees’ was released. It is the story of one girl’s desperate search for her long lost father. Marilyn is currently working on her second historical romance.
