Hi! I'm Mara, and I'm a writer. I have worked professionally as a journalist, a magazine writer and editor, a literary agency assistant, and an author signing manager, but my real passion is writing fiction. After several attempts at women's fiction, I wrote a young adult fantasy novel and fell in love with the genre. I recently finished a Russian fairytale retelling and an upper YA fantasy, and I have a couple ideas in my back pocket for when I get bored. If I'm not working, mothering, wifing, or writing, I'm probably reading or blogging.
Fortunately my husband is an excellent cook.
I'm a triplet born on Leap Day. What are the odds of that, you ask? Here's the math (done by someone much smarter than me):
(The current US population is 311,591,917, so that means there are roughly 77 triplets in the US with leap day birthdays.)
