Marijka Bright is originally from Australia; however, she has been living in Berlin, Germany for the past 6 years. She loves to travel and met her partner, who is originally from Berlin, during her many months spent travelling through India. She has obtained Bachelor degrees in Biomedical science, Psychology and a Masters in Accounting. Upon her bones being slowly ground into dust and being scattered unceremoniously throughout the corporate wasteland, she relinquished a very secure job at a large firm, to pursue her dream of becoming an author.
Her debut novel, ‘Underneath the Killing Tree’ was released in May 2017, followed closely by her short story collection, ‘The Monsters in my Mind, Beat Their Chests.’ Her second novel, ‘The Never After’ was released in March 2021. Marijka had her short story, ‘The Glooms’ published in ‘The Wild Word’ magazine at the beginning of 2017.
She is currently pursuing a second Master’s degree at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain and is interested in contributing to the field of the origins of consciousness and the mind-body problem. She also runs the website sociallyminded.org.
