Marguerite Kenner

Marguerite Kenner

Marguerite Kenner is a native Californian who has forsaken sunny paradise to live with her true love in Merrye Olde England. She’s frequently juggling plates or wearing so many hats that she needs two heads. When she’s not grappling with legal conundrums as a commercial solicitor, lecturing, editing the YA podcast Cast of Wonders, or working behind the scenes as COO of Escape Artists, she can be found narrating audio fiction, studying popular culture (i.e. going to movies and playing video games) with her partner Alasdair Stuart, or curling up with a really good book. You can follow her adventures on Twitter (@LegalValkyrie).
