Dan Marshall (1980-) was born in Columbus, Ohio, at the emergence of the internet age. He got his first computer, an IBM PC/AT, in 1984, and it was the beginning of a life-long love of technology. He also grew up with books, following L'Engle and Asimov and Clarke through wondrous universes teeming with possibilities. He enjoys merging these two interests to create stories for the next generation of readers.
He briefly lived in Pittsburgh and Sarasota before moving to Portland, Oregon, in 2011. By day, he provides end-user support at an ad and marketing agency. By night, he sleeps.
