Christie Meierz is the author of the Amazon bestsellers The Marann, Into Tolari Space, and Daughters of Suralia. Born in Chicago, she grew up in southern California and has traveled extensively with her family all over the United States. She now lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and can say that she has at least set foot and eaten a meal in all 50 States and several of the U.S. Territories.
Christie isn’t certain when she started writing, but she thinks it was in second grade, when she was seven years old. None of her early writings survive, for which she is profoundly grateful. It didn’t occur to her to publish any of her work until the spring of 2012, when she set fingers to keyboard while recovering from a serious illness and started writing a story that would later become The Marann. Before the summer was over, she’d written the basis of three novels and a half dozen shorter stories.
Going indie seemed like the logical choice at the time and proved to be the best one, giving her a great deal of freedom to decide where her writing is going and how it’s presented. She loves to hear from readers as they discover the worlds she’s created.
