Marissa Burt writes middle grade fantasy and is represented by Laura Langlie of the Laura Langlie Literary Agency. She grew up in Portland, Oregon, and drifted eastward, living in Colorado, Illinois, Tennessee, and South Carolina, before coming back home to the Pacific Northwest.
Along the way, she studied Sociology, Ancient Languages, and Theology and clocked hours as a social worker, barista, 5th grade teacher, bookseller, faculty assistant, and reference librarian. But not all at the same time.
Marissa now lives in the Seattle area with her husband and three sons where she enjoys time spent around family, friends, and good books.
You can find Marissa on her blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads. She also belongs to Project Mayhem.
