Mary Berman writes mostly – but not exclusively – fantasy and science fiction, both adult and YA. She is a third-year MFA candidate in fiction at the University of Mississippi, has a BA in Writing Seminars from Johns Hopkins University, and studied English at St. Anne's College at the University of Oxford.
During the day she works as the Assistant Director of the Writing Center at the University of Mississippi, where she has also taught freshman composition and fiction workshop. Her volunteer work includes co-hosting the Broken English Reading Series in Oxford, Mississippi, and working as the logistics coordinator for BinderCon New York, a writing conference for women and gender-nonconforming folk.
When not writing, studying, or working, Mary can be found practicing taekwondo, reading about the French Revolution, and chasing her cat, Mochi, around the house.
