Hi there, I’m Marie (she/her)! 👋🏻

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

I was a finalist in the 2020 Book Pipeline Unpublished Contest with my co-author, Jessi Honard. Our debut novel, Unrelenting, was published by Not a Pipe Publishing in 2022. Unrelenting is a finalist in the 2022 New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards in 3 categories.

I was also a finalist for the 2021 Futurescapes Award for Most Promising New Author for Flightless, a fantasy heist that explores the impact of classism.

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.
