Marlowe House is currently comprised of Andrew and Monica Marlowe.
Andrew started freelance writing in 2012 after placing in the Top 16 of Paizo’s RPG Superstar contest the first time. When he placed in the Top 16 again in 2014, his freelancing career was already well underway. Andrew has been gaming for more than 30 years.
Monica began freelance writing career under duress after losing her sanity check when she entered Paizo’s 2015 RPG Superstar contest and winning. She is well known for her stubbornness. Monica has been gaming several decades, but clearly lives outside the mundane timeline of this plane.
Marlowe House was established in 2015 when Andrew and Monica realized that at times they write both separate and together and wanted to acknowledge that collaborative work. As well, they like to acknowledge their luck at having such a fantastic surname to write under while giving their gaming children an opportunity to grow into the family business.

He now lives in Oklahoma (for some reason) and spends even more time drawing, playing games, and watching movies to fuel his addled imagination.
Jacob has worked as a freelance artist for over ten years, working with companies such as Fainting Goat Games, Misfit Studios, Rite Publishing, and Rogue Genius Games. He had dipped his toes in writing with the sourcebooks ‘Lunar Knights’ and the ‘Super Powered Bestiary.’ When not illustrating game books or writing, Jacob spends his time drawing paper figures for his home RPG campaigns; currently numbering in the thousands.
