The life of Maryn Roos thus far, has been filled with many exciting adventures. She has been chased by Russian black marketeers through the underground streets of Kiev. A Wisconsin State Capital Security Guard told her, that had he a grenade, she would blow up quite nicely. During her internship in New York City, she often dodged flying cow carcasses on her way to work. Somewhere amidst this chaos, she managed to graduate from Brigham Young University in 1995 with a Bachelor's of Fine Art Degree in Illustration, magna cum laude. She continued her days in the greater Utah Valley working at Waterford Institute, an educational software development company. There she created interactive games, illustrated children's books and led a scurvy band of pirates in singing the ABC's. Having grown weary of her Utah internment, Maryn returned to her native Northern California to work at Lucas Learning Ltd. As a Lead Artist, she contributed to creating educational software for CD-Rom's and the Internet, and learned more about Wookiees than anyone should ever be allowed to know. After narrowly escaping being crushed by a gigantic Han Solo frozen in carbonite, she relocated to the Beehive State. She has since been kept on her toes illustrating book covers, magazine articles and dozens of children's books. Snug in her Provo Utah cottage, she enjoys living the glamorous life of an illustrator and avoiding flying carcasses of all varieties.
