Hi there! This site is designed to address the craft and business of writing through the lens of my literary life and work, more specifically my novel Dead Animal People, published outside of the mainstream publishing machine in the form of an eBook. Thank you for visiting, and please feel free to contribute your thoughts, disagreements, or insights regarding my posts or the publishing world in general. Best, Marina Nguyen
Marina Nguyen lives in New York City where she works as a writer. Her father is from Argentina. Her mother is from Vietnam. She was raised in Virginia. This is her first novel.
Marina’s florid and lyrical writing style is strongly influenced by nature, which she first became interested in as a child when she collected butterflies caught in her backyard with a gardening bucket. The themes of life, death, ephemeral beauty, violent struggle, and nuanced spirituality inform her characters as they seek meaning, love, and identity in their journeys across an elegantly torn world.
