Marlena Cannon


I have always enjoyed creative writing and I once won second place in a county-wide writing contest in the 4th grade. I wrote a bit of fan-fiction, some of which is still on the Internet. However, I never took any creative writing classes and I felt like my original writing was not good enough to publish. That all changed during the pandemic, when I began working on a cozy mystery novel set in an original fantasy world.

Upcoming Novel: The Vanishing Castle: A Simarron the Centaur Mystery (working title)

Simarron is not like other centaurs. He left his home in the Wildlands to get a respectable job in the city as a magical safety inspector. However, his new life isn’t quite as he imagined it to be and his fellow housemates at the Slant Row Boarding House are shadier than an enchanted forest. When a castle disappears and an alchemist ends up dead, Simarron must play the part of a detective. He is a safety inspector, after all, and the city isn’t safe with a killer on the loose.
