Marc D. Giller wrote his first science-fiction novel at the tender age of sixteen, with the certainty of fame and riches before him. When that plan didn’t work out he went to college instead, earning a bachelor of science degree in journalism from Texas A&M University.

A year in the news business only increased his fascination with making stories up for a living, so he tried a few other genres–horror, thriller, historical fiction–when a script he wrote for Star Trek: The Next Generation earned him a chance to pitch ideas for the show. Though none of those stories aired, he fired off a few more novels and screenplays until HAMMERJACK finally caught the attention of Bantam Spectra.

Over the years, Marc has worked as a photographer, producer, computer trainer, and even had a one-night stint as a television news reporter. For the last several years, he has worked in law firm information systems management.

Marc makes his home in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, where he lives with his wife, two children and a perky little Havanese–all of whom provide him with daily inspiration.
