Like bringing ancient history to life, Susan Bass Marcus’ passion for dragon lore fuels Malevir: Dragons Return, a novel set in Dragonwolder. This adventure fantasy now has a follow-up ‘sibling,’ Where Dragons Follow: Return of the Malevir. The books plunge you, the reader, into tales of humans, dragons, and magical creatures pitted against ruthless monsters, stories marked by danger, mystery, courage, and a lot of magick. Growing up, Marcus discovered her love of stories at her local library. Years of mining its collections encouraged her to become a storyteller and a puppeteer. She entertained audiences throughout the country with her original performances. Later, her storehouse of tales and puppeteering skills enriched her museum career–she was the first professional museum educator to create a life-like interactive dig site program inside a museum using legends and accounts of Near Eastern archaeology to enliven visitor programs.
In addition to this novel, Marcus’ published work includes essays, short stories, and online media.
