About this author

I live in Tacoma, Washington, with my fiancé and our two cats. In addition to my slight obsession with books and writing, I'm big on road-tripping, wine-tasting, and hunting for antiques. I'm represented by Jill Grinberg.

CINDER, my debut novel, is a futuristic re-envisioning of Cinderella in which Cinder is a cyborg mechanic. Release date: 3 Jan 2012.


Fairest is out on January 27! Join us in Tacoma, WA, for the epic launch party hosted by King’s Books and the Tacoma Public Library.


Details to be announced.

Jesikah Sundin Hi Marissa - thank you for accepting my friend request. I write soft-cyberpunk sci-fi with medieval undertones and squealed when I came across your series. Twisted fairy tales are simply irresistible. I live in Monroe, WA, so maybe we'll bump into each other at a writing/book event sometime :) I wish you continued success!


BooksLover Thank you for accepting my friend request! I just want to tell you that you write such an amazing stories that I really love and I want to wish you more and more success in your career because you deserve it!


Sophia✯ Thanks for accepting the friends request! You are soooo amazing! I can't wait for Heartless! (Even though Winter was pushed back ;). I would automatically buy pretty much any book you ever write!)

T.J. Hi Marissa,
I would just like to thank you for accepting my friend request! I'm a young writer who dreams of being published and I'm just inspired by the creativity of your story. It's pretty rare when I find an author I have a lot of respect for, but I'm grateful to those authors when I do.

Thank you for writing such a brilliant story and I wish you the utmost greatest success for all of it.

Karla Velázquez Marissa,

You're awesome.
I'm a big fan of The Lunar Chronicles saga, really.

I'm from Mexico and read the books in spanish and now can't wait for read Cress (well, even if I have to read it in English)

My favorite character is Wolf and Captain Thorne. Oh and Kai. Really you do something great with the male characters that make me fall in love with each.

Although I also love Cinder, Scarlet and Peony.

But, by God, WOLF.

Have a great day :))
