Marko Kloos was born in Germany and raised in and around the city of Münster. In the past, he was a soldier, bookseller, freight dock worker, and corporate IT administrator before he decided that he wasn't good at anything except making up stuff for fun and profit. Marko writes primarily science fiction and fantasy, his first genre love ever since his youth when he spent his allowance mostly on German SF pulp serials. He's the author of the bestselling Frontlines series of military science fiction as well as the upcoming Palladium Wars. He likes bookstores, kind people, October in New England, fountain pens, and wristwatches. Marko lives in New Hampshire with his wife, two children, and roving pack of voracious dachshunds.
