Marie Brennan is a former anthropologist and folklorist who shamelessly pillages her academic fields for material. She is currently misapplying her professors' hard work to the Victorian adventure series "The Memoirs of Lady Trent." The first book of that series, "A Natural History of Dragons," was nominated for a World Fantasy Award. "Cold-Forged Flame," the first novella in the Varekai series, came out in September 2016. She is also the author of the Doppelganger duology, "Warrior" and "Witch," the urban fantasies "Lies and Prophecy" and "Chains and Memory" the Onyx Court historical fantasy series, and more than forty short stories.
