About Me

Short Version:

Margie Fuston grew up in the woods of California where she made up fantasy worlds that always involved unicorns. In college, she earned undergraduate degrees in business and literature and a master’s in creative writing. Now she’s back in the woods and spends all her time wrangling a herd of cats and helping her nephews hunt ghosts, pond monsters, and mermaids. She’s the author of VAMPIRES, HEARTS & OTHER DEAD THINGS (out now) and CRUEL ILLUSIONS (September 2022).

Long Version:

Margie lives in California but dreams of being in New Orleans, eating thin-cut, fried catfish or a muffuletta for every meal. (Followed by beignets for dessert of course.)

She’s the author of VAMPIRES, HEARTS & OTHER DEAD THINGS (out now) and CRUEL ILLUSIONS (September 2022). She has an MA in Creative Writing. Her poetry has appeared in Writer’s DigestGargoyle, and Late Peaches: An Anthology of Sacramento Poets, among others.

She does a little bit of everything to make a living, but she mostly flips houses to support her very spoiled cats.

When she’s not working, writing, or wrangling cats, she’s getting lost in the forest, wandering the beach, or curling up on the couch to watch The Vampire Diaries one more time.

Margie is represented by Rebecca Podos of Rees Literary Agency.
