About Me


Hi, I’m Mari, a Welsh writer of poetry, short stories, novels and children’s books. I live on the coast of Swansea, which is sometimes grey and always glorious. My debut poetry collection, Salacia, is available to pre-order now from Parthian Books. 

My first children’s book, Percy the Pompom Bear, is available now from Rowanvale Books in Welsh and English. To see more on my publication history and accolades, take a peek at my portfolio.

My favourite things in the world are dogs, chocolate, coffee and books. I juggle my creative work with a part-time job as Director and Head of Communications at indycube Community.

I have an MA degree in Creative Writing and am hoping to study further, once a form of funding becomes available to me. I am fascinated by the concept of borders and liminality in literature, as well as gender studies and the portrayal of mental health and witchcraft.

If any of this interests you, please get in touch with me – I love hearing from like-minded people.
