Did you know I am also an expat blogger?

I started my first blog in 2011 when I did a solo trip to the UK and I wanted my family to have a way to keep track of me on my travels. I revived it in 2014 when I made the big move from the U.S. to Germany with my pug, Abner.

Come on over to my first baby: Adventures of La Mari where I write about love, writing, adventure, and the pug.

Panel 4

M. L. Tishner

Mari is a half-Peruvian, half-American hobbit and pug owner who was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana where she grew up writing Sailor Moon/Gundam Wing fanfiction. She studied biology and Spanish at Indiana University where she decided to revive an old space opera she wrote in her high school years.

Mari lives in southern Germany with her husband and pug, Abner, where she regales others of her adventures as an expat in the Land of Beer and Pretzels. The God Queen is her first novel.
