Mary Fan is a sci-fi/fantasy writer hailing from Jersey City, NJ. She is the author of the Jane Colt sci-fi series, (Red Adept Publishing), the Starswept YA sci-fi series, (Snowy Wings Publishing), the Flynn Nightsider YA dark fantasy series (Crazy 8 Press), and Stronger Than a Bronze Dragon, a YA steampunk fantasy (Page Street Publishing). She is also the editor of Bad Ass Moms, an anthology from Crazy 8 Press.
In addition, Mary is the co-editor (along with fellow sci-fi author Paige Daniels) of the Brave New Girls young adult sci-fi anthologies, which feature tales about girls in STEM. Revenues from sales are donated to the Society of Women Engineers scholarship fund.
Her short fiction has appeared in numerous anthologies, including Pangaea III: Redemption (edited by Michael Jan Friedman), Keep Faith (edited by Gabriela Martins), Thrilling Adventure Yarns (edited by Bob Greenberger), Magic at Midnight (edited by Lyssa Chiavari and Amy McNulty), They Keep Killing Glenn (edited by Peter and Kathleen David), Tales of the Crimson Keep: Newly Renovated Edition (edited by Bob Greenberger), Mine! A Celebration of Liberty and Freedom for All Benefitting Planned Parenthood (from ComicMix), and Love, Murder & Mayhem (edited by Russ Colchamiro).
Mary has been an avid reader for as long as she can remember and especially enjoys the infinite possibilities and out-of-this-world experiences of science fiction and fantasy. In her spare time (when she has any), she enjoys kickboxing, opera singing, attempting circus arts, and exploring new things—she'll try almost anything once.
Mary graduated Magna cum Laude from Princeton University in 2010 with a Bachelor of the Arts in Music, specializing in composition. Although she is currently focusing on writing, music is still her first love, and so in her spare time she tries to compose a song or two.
Mary is represented by Dr. Uwe Stender of Triada US Literary Agency.
