Marc Polett loves writing and storytelling and was inspired to write Lily's Wondrous World by his wife’s love of animals and her unique ability to understand them. Marc was born and raised in scenic Gladwyne, PA, and spent his childhood exploring the parks and trails that are spread throughout the historic town, finding peace in nature.

Marc received a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of Arizona, where he also studied poetry and creative writing and earned an MBA from Temple University’s Fox School of Business. Marc began his career in web development and now works in finance. He has experience in graphic design and mobile game development but has found writing to be his favorite form of creative expression.
