Mari is a wife and homeschooling mom of four children, ages 5 to teenager. She steals hours or forces moments from her hectic day to write. She has been known to wake at dawn to write and continues into the late hours of night. She keeps a notebook and flashlight on her nightstand for the words that come to her in the wee hours.
Mari has been writing poetry since she was a teenager. Her poems met their fate in a fiery pit. She slowly moved on to short stories, which joined the same doom as their predecessors. She has recently begun writing again, these novels, short stories and poems have not been destined to burn.
Her writing dominates the paranormal sub-genre, although she is fond of quoting Carlos Fuentes by saying:
“Don’t classify me, read me. I’m a writer, not a genre.”
She lives an hour south of Phoenix with her husband and four children. When she isn’t homeschooling her children. She can be found writing or reading.
