Marianne Jones was born shortly before the end of World War 2 and grew up on Ynys Môn/Anglesey, where she now lives with her husband, an environmental campaigner.
After completing a first degree and qualifying as a teacher, she lived and worked abroad for several years: in Kyushu, Tokyo, Vancouver and Montreal. When she arrived back in Britain, she worked as a lecturer/teacher of English as a second language and later as co-ordinator of Japanese educational projects. She completed a second MA (the first was in Montreal) and a postgraduate diploma in multicultural education.
She started writing short stories at the age of eight, and poetry at the age of ten, and won a camera and some useful pocket money in competitions. A few years ago, an opportunity to take voluntary early retirement from running an educational centre enabled her to focus on writing again.
