GetAttachment.aspx copy.jpegMy story began a little over 30 years ago in Jeremie, Haiti. I was adopted at the age of three and grew up near Vancouver, B.C. I grew up in a large family, including four other siblings adopted from Haiti. I eventually made my way down to Florida, where I have been living since 2002. When I moved to Florida, I finished my Bachelor’s degree and eventually met my husband. We married in 2007, and we are now parents to two beautiful children.

I like to write poems, essays, and short stories, and most of my writing centers on adoption. Besides writing, I love to travel, and I’ve been to over ten different countries. South Florida is now my home, but I’m always looking for an adventure. I’m also a Journalism and literature teacher, and I’ve been teaching for over 10 years.On the weekends, you can find me on the beach enjoying a good book.

I would love to hear from you. Send me an email – mariettewrites@gmail.com.

    Warmest regards,
