About Melissa Marr

Melissa Marr: Although I was voted "most likely to end up in jail" in high school, I decided to get an M.A. and teach Lit and Gender Studies to college students across the country. Along the way, Ive been unable to resist trying new things - including working an archeological dig, slinging drinks at a biker bar, and getting fabulous tattoos. I call all of this "research" for my writing. To fill my craving for new experiences, Ive lived in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Southern California, and I plan to keep roaming with my family as widely and as often as possible. This year, I think, Im living in Virginia.
