Marjorie McCown has spent her entire professional life in the story-telling business, though she started out on the visual side of the craft. A Midwesterner by birth, she earned a BA in Theater from the University of Virginia and an AAS in Fashion Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City where she began her career designing costumes for theater and opera. She made her reputation designing for opera and theater companies all over the country, including the New York City Opera at Lincoln Center, before she moved to Los Angeles to work on feature films.

Marjorie spent 25 years working as a key member of the costume design teams for a string of successful movies that includes Forrest GumpApollo 13A Bronx TaleThe FirmWag the DogThe AviatorHairsprayAngels and DemonsThe Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and X-Men Days of Future Past.

She brings that wealth of experience to her writing, giving readers a look at Hollywood that’s different from what they’re accustomed to seeing on the red carpet: her mysteries are set behind-the-scenes in the everyday working world of a movie in production.

Books have been a mainstay for Marjorie throughout her life and being part of the mystery writing community is a dream come true for her. She is a member of Sisters in Crime and Mystery Writers of America.
