Marie Brennan

MARIE BRENNAN is a former anthropologist and folklorist who shamelessly pillages her academic fields for material. She recently misapplied her professors’ hard work to Turning Darkness Into Light, a sequel to the Hugo Award-nominated series The Memoirs of Lady Trent. As half of M A Carrick, she is also the author of The Mask of Mirrors, first in the Rook and Rose trilogy.
