Marion G. Harmon (Marion for his great-grandfather, George for his father), was born in Salt Lake City but moved from post to post with his family at the whim of the US military. His travels have taken him as far as Stuttgart in Germany, Sydney, and finally to Las Vegas. After gaining degrees in literature and history, he settled down to tell people how to manage their money.
Mr. Harmon's first novel, Wearing the Cape, was published in 2011, and he has since written two novels set in the same world (Villains Inc. and Bite Me: Big Easy Nights). He is currently working hard on a fourth book, this one featuring Astra and company, while polishing the plot of his deeply unserious space epic, Worst Contact.
