Marla L. Anderson

I am a writer of novel length fiction and short stories, concentrating mostly (but not exclusively) on science fiction. I also dabble in horror, suspense, fantasy, mainstream fiction and the occasional philosophical rant.

Yes, sometimes I stay in the real world, though it’s not nearly as much fun as the ones I can imagine.

I hope you will join me on my flights of fancy.
