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.
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 that 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. She has deep feelings about the environment and social issues, and is a self confessed nerd with a terrible sense of humor and colorful language. She was a mentee of the WriteMentor 2020 program.
