Southern born and raised.
Things she loves: french macarons, good bourbon, home cooked meals, spending a day on the water, the smells of fall and winter, boots, plaid, my cat, cooking shows, bacon, wine, scarves (to which I will never have too many), the sound of a screen door squeaking shut on a front porch, biscuits, bluegrass, and anything peppermint.
Marisa Stickel is always scouring places for good coffee, tacos, and beer. She is a WV native who claims Wilmington, NC as her real forever home, and she loves reading, writing, and dancing. Although she is currently living in the mountains working on her PhD in English, she is counting down the days until she can move back to the coast.
