Andy Marino

Born: United States of America

Andy Marino was born and raised in upstate New York. He spent his childhood orchestrating LEGO pirate battles, drawing detailed maps of imaginary video games, and cheating death in choose your own adventure books. Profoundly influenced by the work of J.R.R. Tolkien and the movie Bloodsport, he started writing his first novel at the age of eleven. Tragically, The Runes of Illiarm was never completed.

In sixth grade, he won a spelling bee and qualified for regionals, one step away from the national spelling bee in Washington, DC. Thoughts of ESPN cameras and fawning groupies clouded his mind, and he misspelled the word "malediction."

During his teen years, Andy designed sets for school plays and became an expert stockpiler of unfinished art projects. After graduating from NYU with a bachelor"s degree in English, he played guitar in the bands Sayonara and Sleepcrime, and got serious about writing fiction.

The insidious tractor beam of online social networks became the inspiration for Unison Spark, a novel about two teens with a secret past fighting the manipulative, all-consuming social network of the future. A strange and possibly morbid childhood fascination with Civil War photographs planted the seeds for Uncrashable Dakota, which concerns the discovery of flight, a long-simmering family feud, and the fate of the world"s most magnificent airship, not to mention a very odd species of beetle.
