Descended from generations of Tarot card readers (four that we know of), Lynn Marron has a wide range of interests: travel, genetics, camp cooking, psychometry, painting, science fiction, horses and wild animals, the supernatural world, historical reenacting, weapons of all kinds, miniatures, sailing ships and swimming, all of which manages to burst forth in her books. Lynn has written comic book scripts, short stories, radio plays, television scripts and novels. Reading that for a story in Fantasy and Science Fiction she had been nominated at the first level for a Nebula award, she hyperventilated for the only time in her life-keep that in mind if you ever decide to nominate her for a Hugo or Edgar! Trying to carve out time for writing, Lynn spent years as a Permanent Temporary, exposing her to: all sorts of jobs (Entenmann's Cake Pusher); and people (the guy, who coming out of his office, finding his secretary passed out on the floor, just jumped over her and kept on walking to lunch); and locations (working in places ranging from a two hundred and fifty year old flour mill to the World Trade Center). Now writing almost daily at home, she lives in Connecticut, with her computer geek husband, Lenny Bloom, and their two fifteen year olds, who refuse to allow their names to be connected with this latest humiliation (but it's George and Philip). Her gold fish don't care if she uses their names, they are: Lucky, Beluga, Splash and Jazz (But Jazz is missing-plot for another mystery book?) You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
