Lucy Marker

I love writing about survivors, gay and straight, who become their own heroes. I never lack inspiration. We're surrounded by ordinary people who use extraordinary courage every day.

I live in the lovely if crowded San Francisco Bay Area with my husband. Luckily, our two children inherited his quick wit. One of my saddest life failures is neglecting to chase after him and write down at least a fraction of his dialogue to use in my books.
