Currently a medical student at the University of Nice, Marisa Orton is a young British/Canadian writer who loves to travel. She has written stories inspired by her adventures in Japan, Hungary and many other interesting places, but she dreams of exploring further perspectives and continuing her research into new and wonderfully baffling cultures. For the purpose of her latest novel, Unfathomable, Marisa decided to extrapolate the idea of an entirely new sea-born society from a cumulation of her most unusual experiences. Marisa also plays tennis at a professional level and has been involved in a number of local concerts for her squeaky clarinet-playing. Most of her time, however, is dedicated to analyzing the fascinations of the human brain, in her pursuit of becoming a neurologist; this is an aspect of her life which she strives to incorporate into her writing world, by playing not only on the plot of a story, but also on the characters’ most flummoxing neurological reactions. Marisa spent her childhood in Cambridge and in the south of France, with her fun, adventurous English teacher mother and crazy cat.
