SCBWI Profile: Member Profile


A Latina born and raised in a one block radius in Passaic, NJ, Marisol had an amazing childhood with the neighboring children whom she remains friends with to this day. Then life happens, everyone grows up and go on their merry way.  As an adult and in her very little spare time she was able to start a hobby that became a rewarding passion. Working in a fast-paced, stressful insurance industry for 20+ years, her release would be the arts.  She loves creating, designing, learning a new skill to constantly challenge herself. 
With the lively imagination from her daughter, niece, and nephews, and their passion for reading it was a very easy process to bring her daughter's made-up childhood stories to life.
