About Mara

Born in Puerto Rico to a power plant worker and musician, and a sports merchandise saleswoman, Mara now lives in The Netherlands with her Dutch husband, Vincent, their daughter, Kaley, and their cat, Boef.

Fluent in Dutch, Spanish and English, Mara speaks Dutch at her job, where she works as a communications advisor, and speaks Spanish with her family back home, yet she always had a penchant and a love for the English language, which couldn’t be any more clear when anyone sees how she speaks to her family at home, the novels she enjoys the most, and the love stories she writes on her phone during her commute to work. Her unpublished public stories are available on Wattpad, and you can follow her on Instagram for small snapshots of her daily life.
