Marcus Jackson, author of Angatkuq is an artist and writer living in Yellowknife with his three cats. He participated in (and finished) the 2011 NaNoWriMo challenge and wrote his first novel in just 30 days! He is now editing said novel and planning another. Marcus writes two blogs on an irregular basis and occasionally reads the dictionary for fun. He studied writing at the University of Calgary and the fine art of print media at Alberta College of Art and Design. Angatjuq will be Marcus’ first published work.
