Mary Fan writes things with spaceships, spells, monsters, and mayhem. And sometimes kissing. Like Starswept (YA sci-fi romance), the Jane Colt trilogy (space opera), the Flynn Nightsider series (YA dystopia/fantasy), the Fated stars series (YA high fantasy), and the Chevonne& Sherlock tales (YA sci-fi mystery).
Mary is a lifelong nerd, shameless font aficionado, and terrible model minority. She wasted her Princeton education on a music degree. She stands for diversity in books and more girls in STEM. Because of the latter, she’s also the co-publisher of the Brave New Girls YA sci-fi anthologies about brainy heroines (sales benefit the Society of Women Engineers scholarship fund). Clearly, she’s ruining sci-fi/fantasy and destroying America.
She currently resides in Jersey City, NJ, and will take on anyone who dares badmouth her state–particularly smarmy New Yorkers–in a violin battle.
