Mary Fan is a hopeless dreamer, whose mind insists on spinning tales of “what if.” As a music major in college, she told those stories through compositions. Now, she tells them through books—a habit she began as soon as she could pick up a pencil. She is the author of the well-received Jane Colt sci-fi novels, which comprise Artificial Absolutes (Red Adept Publishing, 2013), Synthetic Illusions (Red Adept Publishing, 2014), and Virtual Shadows (2015). She also has two series under contract with Glass House Press: Flynn Nightsider, a YA dystopian fantasy, and Fated Stars, a YA high fantasy. Mary would like to think that there are many other novels in her bag, and hopes to prove that to the world as well. She is also the co-editor of Brave New Girls: Tales of Girls and Gadgets, a YA sci-fi anthology aimed at encouraging more girls to enter STEM careers.
Mary lives in New Jersey and has a B.A. from Princeton University. When she’s not scheming to create new worlds, she enjoys kickboxing, opera singing, and blogging about everything having to do with books.
