Writer Biography

Marie Harbon has worked in both the retail and fitness industry. She has a degree in sport and fitness and taught group exercise for several years, delivering aerobics and Pilates classes. For two years, she delivered BTEC Sport courses and has also instructed dance and sport with children.

She wrote her first novel length story at the age of twelve, which in retrospective was an early prototype of ‘Lost’, in that her secondary school class were shipwrecked on an island and had to contend with giant rabbits and aliens. Since then, she has written on and off, evolving her style and literary maturity.

‘Seven Point Eight’ began life as a short story in the early nineties but on realising the idea could be grown into something more substantial, it was later developed into a trilogy. When it became clear how vast an epic it was becoming, it was finally born as a full five part series of books. Work on ‘The Second Chronicle’ has already begun.

Marie has two children and lives with her son and four guitars in the town of Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, which is in England. She divides her time between writing, making clothes, teaching and being a mum, juggling both creativity and necessity.

    I have worked with young people consistently, from 5-16 due to my teaching background. Although my PGCE is in further education, I’m happy working with children as well as adults and would love to share my passion for writing and creativity.
    I am a confident and eloquent public speaker, aided by my teaching and fitness instruction background.
