Marcelle Dubé grew up near Montreal. After trying out a number of different provinces – not to mention Belgium – she settled in the Yukon, where people outnumber the carnivores, but not by much. Undaunted, she started her family and now has two beautiful daughters: Rotten Daughter #1 and Rotten Daughter #2. She has worked as an editorial assistant, a newspaper librarian, an accountant, a military policewoman and a communications officer. All things considered, she prefers sitting in a warm, comfy room and making stories up. She also writes under the pen name of Emma Faraday.
Her novels have been published by Carina Press and Falcon Ridge Publishing. Her short fiction has appeared in On Spec Magazine; Polaris: A Celebration of Polar Science; Open space: A Canadian Anthology of Fantastic Fiction; and Challenging Destiny 25, among other places. Polaris received the 2007 Canadian Science in Society Book Award and was a finalist for the Aurora Award, Canada’s reader’s choice award for science fiction and fantasy.
