Marianne J. Dyson

As a NASA Flight Activities Officer during the early shuttle program, Marianne Jakmides Dyson became one of the first ten women — and half of the first married couple — to work a console in Mission Control. After leaving NASA to raise a family and work as a consultant, she began writing for various magazines and journals. Her first non-fiction book, Space Station Science, was published in October 1999.

Marianne is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, the Science Fictions and Fantasy Writers of America, and the Bay Area Writers League. She was a congressional intern and served as a state delegate several times. She also chaired the National Space Society's International Space Development Conference in 1999. A member of the NASA Alumni League, Marianne was a founding sponsor of the Challenger Center and a founding member of the Mars Society.

A frequent contributor to Odyssey children's magazine and technical reviewer for Enslow, Marianne resides in Houston, Texas, with her family and a household of cute pets and unfinished projects.
