Marie Croke

Biography

Marie Croke went to bed with a miniature dictionary (she still has it) before she was school aged. She's been reading since kindergarten (that is when they teach it) and writing stories since first grade (it was a requirement). She borrowed (more like stole...temporarily) books from sisters and hid them under her pillow. It made her sleep better.

She is now a fantasy writer. In 2011, she won first place in the Writers of the Future Contest (Vol. 28). She has since sold to Beneath Ceaseless Skies and Daily Science Fiction.

Marie lives in Maryland with her fiancé and two children. You can find her online at www.mariecroke.com
