In a few words…
Mariana Llanos writes since very young. In her native Lima, Peru, she used to write poems and short stories about ants that wanted power, sad girls who chased rivers, and old ladies who loved roses. She loved plays and acting, so she studied Theater hoping to become an actress or a director. When se became interested in arts and crafts, she taught herself how to Papier Mache and she created all kinds of funky artwork.
She moved then to Oklahoma with her husband. She has worked at a preschool for the past 8 years, stimulating children through music and art. Mariana has three children who have motivated her to write again and create stories that sometimes, only sometimes, take after them.
Her books, Tristan Wolf, A Planet for Tristan Wolf, The Staircase on Pine Street, The Wanting Monster, No Birthday for Mara, and A Superpower for Me (books available in Spanish also) are on Amazon.com and her website http://www.marianallanos.com
“Mariana writes with the hear of a mother and the imagination of a child.”-Author Jo Ann Glim
