M. O. Muriel is the winner of the L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future 2011. She is also the winner of the Illustrators of the Future 2010, making her the first woman to win both contests since their inception, and the first to do it in back-to-back years. With a B. A. in Creative Writing from the University of New Mexico, which she earned with High Honors, cum laude (May 2004), she has sold both short stories and illustrations to speculative fiction e-zines such as AlienSkin and NewMyths.
Fulltime, Muriel is mother. She was a Marine spouse and, after an inter-service transfer, a 1st Cav Army wife for 11 years. Part time, she can be found illustrating her novels, composing their soundtracks, watching Red vs. Blue, and studying biblical prophecy, canonical and non-canonical.
Currently, Muriel resides near Syracuse, NY. When she's not busy herding kids and ferrets, and generally holding down the fort, she's trying to squeeze in a moment or two for writing and illustration—forget the katz!
