Marnie Cate is a writer of coming of age and urban fantasy novels. Born in an Irish mining town in Montana, she always had a flair for the dramatic and a vivid imagination, and spent her childhood lost in the elaborate worlds she created with the help of her dolls. One day Marnie Cate was struck by a powerful image in her mind. This seed created the world of Starten and the complicated world of goddesses and their touch on the mortal world. Inspired by the actress Dame Judi Dench, she pursued her dream of sharing the stories that were brewing in her mind.
In 2015, Marnie Cate finished her first novel, Remember: Protectors of the Elemental Magic. With the world of elemental magic and the humans they lived in released, the stories have just begun. In addition to the Protectors series, Marnie has written her first women's literature books with A Broken Girl Collection which dives into the hard subject of how life's pain shapes us and how we can break the mold.
When not writing, Marnie enjoys reading, coffee and spending time with her kitty. She lives in Arizona.
