marlon-profileMarlon is the author of Garden Enclave, book one in the Meld Resistance series of urban sci-fi novels. As of January 2014, it is being shopped by an agent and seeking a publisher.

An avid gardener, Marlon co-maintains a community garden space in his home city of Philadelphia, where he grows vegetables, perennial herbs and flowers.  The garden’s combination of urban environment and verdant profusion provides fertile ground for Marlon’s imagination and inspires his books’ “gardenpunk” setting and style.

To make ends meet while the book gets published, Marlon works as a freelance ghostwriter of web content, sales copy and other such endeavors. He lives with his fiance and two cats in a hundred-year-old South Philly townhouse.
