Hi there, I’m Marie (she/her)! 👋🏻

I’m a fantasy + sci-fi + horror author living with my dogs in New Mexico. I landed here after traveling full-time in an RV for years.

My debut novel, Unrelenting, was co-written with Jessi Honard and was published by Not a Pipe Publishing in 2022.

I’ve had a short career so far, but it’s already been exciting. Unrelenting was the winner of the 2022 New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards in the category of Gay/Lesbian (LGBTQ) and a finalist in the categories of Fiction: Sci-Fi/Fantasy and First Book NM.

In addition, I was a finalist for the 2021 Futurescapes Award for Most Promising New Author for my yet-unpublished fantasy heist, Flightless. And I was a finalist for the 2020 Book Pipeline Unpublished Contest in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy category.

My writing uses speculative fiction to dive into topics like social justice, the environment, and the power of friendship.

As the co-owner of North Star Messaging +Strategy, a content marketing agency formed in 2010, I’m passionate about helping CEOs brand their voice and freelance writers succeed financially.

When I’m not writing, I love to hike, camp, travel, and chow down on New Mexico green chile.
