Marlie Wasserman writes historical crime fiction.

Her debut novel, THE MURDERESS MUST DIE, tells the story of Martha Place, the first woman to die in the electric chair.  Marlie is writing two other novels—one set in Panama in 1906, centered around Teddy Roosevelt’s visit to the Canal, and another set in Manhattan in 1899, centered around a deadly hotel fire.  Before she turned to novels, Marlie ran a university press specializing in nonfiction books in the social sciences and humanities.

When she is not writing, Marlie sketches and travels. Topping her bucket list is a visit to each of the United States’ sixty-two national parks. She has visited thirty-nine to date.

Marlie and her husband Mark split their time between New Jersey and North Carolina.
