Marjorie M. Liu


Marjorie M. Liu @marjorie_liu, Attorney, Novelist, Comic Book Writer. Marjorie received her J.D. from the University of Wisconsin Law School. Prior to writing full-time, she was a practicing lawyer and decided to make a career change. She wanted to write, so she poured her creative energy into the world of fan fiction. That writing practice helped Marjorie develop her muscles and her voice as a writer. When it came time for her first novel — a paranormal romance called Tiger Eye — she says the transition from being a lawyer to a full-time, professional writer was easy. In July 2018, she became the first woman in the 30-year history of the Eisner Awards to win for Best Writer for her latest work, Monstress. Currently, Marjorie is the New York Times bestselling and award-winning writer, and she works on the Marvel series such as NYX, X-23, and Astonishing X-Men. In addition, she teaches comic book writing at Massachusetts Institute of Technology @mitpics, and she leads a class on Popular Fiction at the Voices of Our Nation (VONA) workshop.⠀
