MaryRose believes in a creative aspect of life termed “meraki.” When you love doing something, anything, so much that you put something of yourself into it.
She applies this philosophy to her writing as much as she did to her thirty year career as a massage therapist. She has traveled throughout the U.S., Canada, and into Western Europe, growing her bucket list each year. She is excited to keep adding those off-the-beaten-path adventures both at home and abroad.
Home is in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, where she resides between mountains and water. Her love for sailing these waters takes her, and her partner, to destinations all along the Salish Sea, including the San Juan and Gulf Islands of Washington State and British Columbia.
When not fulfilling her wanderlust, she enjoys an evening home with her partner, a good book, and a wee dram of whiskey. MaryRose is a lifelong vegetarian and proud mom of two, amazing grown children, who accompany her on adventures when they can.
