Marc Criley avidly read fantasy and science fiction for over forty-five years before deciding to try his hand at writing it, and the publication of “Shattered Hand” demonstrates that one is never too old to start. He and his wife manage a household of cats–and Tammy the Dog–at their home in the hills of North Alabama. Marc is a software developer by day and has released open source software for Linux. His fiction has appeared in Abyss & Apex and is forthcoming from Galaxy’s Edge. Marc noisily tweets as @That_MarcC about all manner of things and keeps an author website at www.kickin-the-darkness.com.
