About this author

Self confessed geek, knowledge-a-holic and worshipper of beautiful fabrics, Marie Harbon is a British speculative fiction writer who likes to dabble with themes of epic proportions. She loves to create character driven fiction and finds the human race both fascinating and frustrating. Her books have underlying spiritual themes and range from science fiction to dystopians, and from paranormal fantasies to high octane adventures.

In the past, she has been a retail assistant, fitness instructor and college lecturer, but now she focuses on teaching English as a foreign language, writing and editing.

Jen Hey Marie,

Thanks for accepting my friend request. :) Just finished reading and reviewing your book. It was amazing.

message 2: by Marie

Marie Harbon If you don't like science, then don't read a science fiction book. Read the blurb: it clearly states what to expect. If you want everything to unfold in one book, then don't read something that indicates it's the first of five books. If you don't like a story set in different decades, then don't read it; it clearly states in the blurb it moves through the 40s, 60s to modern day. Don't moan when something does exactly what it says on the tin.
