Marie DesJardin published her first story while she was in college and the rest between day jobs. She has one published science fiction novel, several more on the way, and a raft of short stories. Marie writes both humorous and dramatic speculative fiction, including science fiction, fantasy, and alternative history. In her day job, she develops eLearning courses for a video surveillance company, which means she never has to ask what anyone else is doing, because she already knows. Marie adores animals, travels extensively, and enjoys hiking in the mountains when they are not on fire.
