Christie Meierz

MisCon 27 Attending Professional

Author of the Amazon bestsellers in space opera, The Marann, Daughters of Suralia, and Into Tolari Space, she lives in Pittsburgh with her husband, a software engineer and mathematician, and her youngest son, who is studying engineering.

Christie Meierz began by self-publishing and now writes space opera for Sky Warrior Books. Her debut novel, The Marann, won the 2013 Prism award for Futuristic Romance given by the Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal Chapter of the Romance Writers of America, the first self-published author to win this prestigious award. She combines depth of world-building with compelling characterization and a tight, clean style.

Christie now divides her time between reading voraciously, writing obsessively, and spending time with her fuzzy, mop-topped mathematician-slash-software-engineer husband.
