Mari Ness spent much of her life wandering the world and reading. This, naturally, trained her to do just one thing: write. Her short fiction and poetry have appeared in numerous print and online publications, including Tor.com, Clarkesworld, Lightspeed, Fireside, Apex Magazine, Daily Science Fiction, Nightmare, Strange Horizons, Uncanny, and Fantasy. She blogs regularly at Tor.com, most recently with the Disney Read-Watch, a series about Disney animated films and their source material, which received a nomination for a Stabby Award. Her poetry has also been nominated for the Rhysling and Dwarf Stars Awards.
She lives in central Florida, with a scraggly rose garden and large trees harboring demented squirrels.
