Marko Kloos was born and raised in Germany, in and around the city of Munster. In the past, he has been a soldier, bookseller, freight dockworker, and corporate IT administrator before he decided that he wasn't cut out for anything other than making stuff up for a living. Marko writes primarily science fiction and fantasy, his first genre love ever since his youth, when he spent his allowance mostly on SF pulp serials. He's the author of the bestselling Frontlines series of military science fiction and is a member of George R.R. Martin's Wild Cards writer consortium. Marko resides at Castle Frostbite in New Hampshire with his wife, two children, and a roving pack of vicious dachshunds. His official website is at www.markokloos.com. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and found on Twitter (where he spends way too much time) @markokloos.
