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

I have an MA degree in Creative Writing and in September will be embarking on doctoral study at Aberystwyth University. I am fascinated by the concept of borders and liminality in literature, as well as gender studies and the portrayal of mental health.

My first children’s book, Percy the Pompom Bear, is available now from Rowanvale Books. My debut novel, How The Broken Live, is also in the process of publication.

To see more on my publication history, take a peek at my portfolio. If any of this interests you, please get in touch with me – I love hearing from like-minded people.
