Mari Ness spent much of her life wandering the world and reading. This, naturally, left her only able to eat chocolate, snark about popular culture, and occasionally write.  She lives in central Florida, with a scraggly rose garden, large trees harboring demented squirrels, and two adorable cats.

Mari Ness’s story “Cat Play” was published in Metaphorosis on Friday, 8 January 2016. Subscribe to our e-mail updates so you’ll know when new stories go live.
