About the author
Scott Marlowe writes both straight-up fantasy and science fantasy. We all know anything can happen in fantasy. But toss in some pseudoscience, an infernal machine or two, and a healthy dose of rampant sorcery and you've got a true recipe for disastrous adventure and fun.
Scott holds degrees in Computer Science Engineering, Comparative Literature, and English from the University of California, Davis.
When he's not writing, Scott likes to hit the trails on his mountain bike or immerse himself in the excitement (sarcasm) and intricacies of tax software. He loves dogs, dark beer, and strong coffee.
He hails from the San Francisco Bay Area, but now lives in Texas with his wife and two crazy dogs.
