Marion G. Harmon picked up a Masters of History degree because he likes stories. He currently resides in Las Vegas, where he dabbles in various aspects of financial planning while trying to get the people in his head onto the page so they’ll stop pestering him.

Addendum: M.G.Harmon still lives in Las Vegas, but has ceased telling other people how to invest their money to become a "professional author," whatever that is. He has written four books, all about Astra and Company. They still won't leave him alone.

[image error]Wow the year is flying, and wow am I behind. I blame my shifting to a very different POV with Repercussions (Third Person Limited, multiple POVs) than I’ve used for most of my other stuff. The result has been an exponentially more complex plotting process. Also, a lot is happening in Book 8. The status quo is getting completely upended in this one, folks, so I’ve got to get it righ...

“The ancient Greeks considered love a mental illness that led to suicide, homicide, betrayal, war, all sorts of fun.”
Marion G. Harmon

“Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is you're stupid and make bad decisions.”
Marion G. Harmon, Ronin Games

“Whenever somebody asks me to define what a hero is, I remember Latane and Darley’s experiment, staging epileptic fits in front of one, two, or three observers. A solitary observer will help immediately if he’s going to help at all, but the larger the crowd the longer the delay. It’s the Bystander Effect: the wider the diffusion of responsibility, the greater the impulse to let someone else go first. The hero goes first.”
Marion G. Harmon, Countermoves

“My dinner party,' Miles grated. 'It's just breaking up.' And sinking. All souls feared lost.
Lois McMaster Bujold, A Civil Campaign

“Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.”
Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time
