Hi. I’m Mari, I began my writing career in 2009 and at first, I was completely surprised that I was hit by the writing bug. In the early days it appeared as though it had come out of nowhere. Like poof, I woke up one day and I was a writer. But upon further review of my life, I noticed how writing had always been something I wanted to do. I could recall moments when something would happen and my first response would be, I should write a book about that. So, I decided to go back to school and get a Bachelor's degree in English, specializing in creative writing. When I’m not reading or writing novels, I’m blogging about living with a positive mindset. I am always seeking for ways to inspire others to follow their dreams.
