Mars Dumont was born in Poona, India. His father was an endocrinologist, and research grants took his family to Mexico City, Silicone Valley, Stockholm, Ann Arbor, and finally New York City. After graduating from the Bronx High School of Science, Mars traveled around Europe, spent some time in London and Prague, and finally landed in Florence, where he studied art and art history. He finished his undergraduate studies at Columbia College, with a major in art history and a minor in physics, and then got a Masters degree at Columbia’s Graduate School of Architecture. Mars then spent many years doing architecture as a day job and playing electric guitar (for The Shameless Sycophants, Dark Blue and Linoleum Blownapart) at night, in clubs ranging from CBGB’s to the Knitting factory. Mars holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and an Elder Brother rank in Tiger Claw Kung Fu. He dabbles in the mysteries of Astrology and Tarot and draws on the archetypes to develop the characters in his books. Mars Dumont speaks five languages: Czech, French, Spanish, English and Italian. Remaining creative is, as far as Mars is concerned, the most important thing in life.
