C. M. Marcum


I am in each of my stories. Look for me there, hiding in the shadows. Part hero, part villain, I’m always read to take a plot to the extreme, to question the universe on things small and large, and to speculate about the worst and best case scenario of ‘what if.’

I have a background in journalism, one story published in Liquid Imagination and one in Alienskin. As an editor, I’m a tool. As a person, I’m pragmatic. As a friend, I’m quite funny. As a writer, I’m a loner by nature, but have no trouble interviewing Johnny Hobo or Mister Success.

I write the stories that come to me, mixed genre they may be. Sorry, I just can’t decide what I want to be when I grow up.
