Overcome with curiosity about whether the pictures in her head matched the ones in the book from which her mother read, she climbed onto her mother’s lap with cries of "Can I see the pictures?" To her utter amazement, there were none. A new and wonderful thought was birthed inside her that day. A person could carve out worlds, adventures, people, pictures, sounds and, at times, even smells from mere words. From that moment on, she knew she wanted to become an author.
Mari divides her time between freelance writing and editing, and advising aspiring writers on the techniques she has learned on creative writing. She has also volunteered with local elementary schools and with an after school reading & tutoring program, and done some grant research. In general, Mari lends a hand wherever and whenever needed.
She resides in Ohio and is currently at work on her next literary project. She hopes to one day capture her mother’s stories in a book. Learn more about Mari and her work at www.mariwalker.com.
