A.R.K. Watson began writing with both arms in braces as a broke college student. Her love of the written word drove her to start a business aimed at popularizing good books, while writing sci-fi and fantasy herself.
She is an American living abroad in South Korea, a world traveler, and an absolute and unrepentant nerd.

Her first published story, The Dunes won an Honorary Mention from the Writer’s of the Future Contest.

Her excerpts from her first published novel, The Vines of Mars earned her admittance to the highly competitive, Yale Writer’s Conference.
