Adventures of La Mari

Check out my writer blogging series Lettering and Literature for information on writing as well as my book reviews expressed through my love of lettering.

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.

But if you prefer a more visual medium – Adventures of La Mari is also a YouTube Channel!

About M. L.

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.

A native Hoosier, Mari now lives in southern Germany where she entertains people with her adventures as an American expat in the Land of Beer and Pretzels on her blog adventuresoflamari.com and YouTube Channel as well as making sure the world knows her pugs, Abner and Roxy, exists. When she’s not writing, Mari cooks, snowboards, dances to the beat of her own drum, reads late into the night, and binge watches a good story unfold on Netflix with her husband. The God Queen is her debut novel.
