Strange words and symbols have been creeping across my body since age 18. I hope someday it will reveal the answers.

First, let's get this out of the way, my Official Author Bio:


Isaac Marion grew up in the mossy depths of the Pacific Northwest, where he worked as a heating installer, a security guard, and a visitation supervisor for foster children before publishing his debut novel in 2010. Warm Bodies became a New York Times bestseller and inspired a major film adaptation. It has been translated into twenty-five languages. Isaac lives in Seattle with his cat, Watson, writing fiction and music and taking pictures of everything.



Ok, now we can relax. Here are a few more important facts:

I also write music, though it's been a while. Here's an album I did in 2007, it's called DEAD CHILDREN.

I am sinister (left handed) do not trust me.

My beard hides a doorway to a hidden world.

I live in a van more often that you might expect.

I have never won a contest or prize of any kind.

The house my family lived in when I was 14 (a modified motorcycle garage) was condemned and burned down by the city. That was the year I started writing.

My job history is long and puzzling.

One time I almost got decapitated.

One time I felt genuine emotion toward a cactus. (his name is Stabby and he is my son.)

I have enjoyed the company of all the following pets: dog, cat, rat, mouse, gerbil, guinea pig, grasshopper, rabbit, turtle, frog, snake, iguana, horse, goat, fish, snail, slug, salamander, and unknown lamprey-like creature discovered in the mud of the Skagit River.

I'm tall and it brings me great delight when little old ladies ask me to get things off high store shelves for them. Finally I have purpose.

I don't really understand what anything is for and I suspect it's not for anything but I think we can invent our own meaning and live in it, like writing and reading a story.

I have never been addicted to anything; I enjoy drugs and alcohol responsibly, but I cannot be around caramel popcorn.

Or pizza, let's be honest.

I have never traveled anywhere warm or pleasant, only desolate European wastelands, probably because some part of me doesn't think I deserve a tropical beach.

My number one travel destination is Antartica. Bury me in the ice until the next age.

Let me know if you're ever in Seattle! I'm friendly and approachable and I love coffee, haha, lol, ok see you later!
