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’ is in the final stages of editing and will be released in late 2019. Marijka had her short story, ‘The Glooms’ published in ‘The Wild Word’ magazine at the beginning of 2017, and she has a second collection of short stories which will be released at the end of 2019.
