About the Author

In addition to being the author of the Marnie Baranuik Files, AJ Aalto is an unrepentant liar, a poor Sudoku puzzler, a badge bunny, a PVP gamer, and a fruitcake. When not studying murder or writing dick jokes, you can find her singing Monty Python songs in the shower, eavesdropping on strangers, stalking her eye doctor, or failing at life. A fan of the ridiculous, she has a particular weak spot for smug a**holes, and enjoys poking narcissists right in the ego construct. Readers will find her work littered with dark creatures and flawed monsters.

AJ cannot say no to a Snickers bar, and has been known to swallow her gum.
