Marcha Fox

Marcha Fox is a science fiction fan and author who has always been fascinated by space and time. She's an old-time Star Wars nut whose favorite movies also include Back to the Future and Deja-vu. Her life-long love of astronomy eventually drove her to obtain a Bachelor of Science Degree in physics from Utah State University, followed by a career of over 21 years at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, where she held a variety of positions including technical writer, engineer, and eventually manager. Needless to say, during that time she got to see all sorts of very cool NASA hardware in other locations that included Florida, California, Alabama, and Washington, D.C. as well as the European Space Agency in The Netherlands.

She feels strongly that science fiction should include accurate science, even though theoretical excursions are inherent to the genre. Violating the known laws of physics without a credible explanation to the contrary is a big "no-no". Inspired by science fiction as a child to pursue a technical education and career, she hopes that her stories will not only teach some science along the way but inspire young readers to follow a similar path.
