Marianna Leal is a Venezuelan writer of Young Adult, currently focused on contemporary stories and with great fantasy and sci-fi ideas. She is determined to represent her gente and writes about strong and vulnerable girls who make their way in a world that tells them they don't belong or are not enough, and boys who are not afraid to show emotion and grow from it. And yes, her stories usually have a little campiness.
She currently resides in Florida, after a couple of years in the US Midwest... which were preceded by a few years in Scandinavia. Fortunately for her, she enjoys traveling and learning about other cultures, and this has been a wonderful adventure she sometimes worries has been a dream all along.
In her spare time she is a full time employee for an engineering company that does care about the planet. Even though she's an awkward turtle with the YOLO energy of a bull in a china shop, she has deep feelings about the environment and social issues. You can also count on her terrible sense of humor and colorful language.
