After a successful career being other people, and later teaching others the many tricks of that trade, Maer Wilson has decided to be herself for a while. Turns out she’s a writer. She’s always loved stories, especially fantasy, mystery and sci fi. She has a dragon-themed room in her home, but sadly no dragons in the back yard. When she’s not writing, Maer plays online video games, teaches college and reads.
Maer has a BA from CSU Fullerton, where she majored in Theatre Arts. As a former professional stage actor in Southern California, she gave over three thousand performances in an eight-year span. This helped tremendously with creating the characters in her books.
While Maer writes cross-genre urban fantasy/ science fiction, she also dips into horror and paranormal mysteries. An avid gamer, her current game of choice is Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Maer is also a co-producer and co-host for the literary podcast, MythBehaving. She enjoys interviewing guests from the publishing world and takes the great advice her guests give and applies it to her own career.
Her books include Relics, Portals, and Magics, Books 1, 2, and 3 in the Modern Magics series. There are also four novelettes in the series – “Ghost Memory,” “Unwanted Ghost,” “Ghost Dancer,” and “Wedding Ghost”, as well as a short story, “Lost Ghost,” found in the collection, Ghosts of Modern Magics. You can find all books and novelettes in the Modern Magics series at Amazon. Maer released Apocalypta Z, a unique take on the zombie genre, in October, 2015. She was named 2015 Fantasy Author of the Year by AuthorClassifieds.com.
Maer is also one of the co-owners of Ellysian Press, along with Jen Ryan.
