About the Author

In 2017, Mariana received the Oklahoma Human Rights Award for her work visiting schools around the world via virtual technology, to promote literacy. That same year she was selected as the Best Latino Artist by the Hispanic Arts Council of Oklahoma. Mariana developed an early love for reading and writing in her native Peru. She studied theater in Lima, but moved to the United States where she decided to pursue her passion: to become a children's author. She dedicates her time to creating multicultural, poignant, and engaging stories and lives with her husband and their three children in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Among her interests are music, young adult fiction, children's books, indie video games, films and TV series, as well as her dream of traveling doing what she loves and finding her own place in the world. She lives in Florence, Italy.


"Drawing a portrait of your best friend should be no problem, but when bffs Eunice and Kate see how each has depicted the other, their longstanding friendship is put to the test. With opposite personalities and styles, one dreams of gracefully dancing ballet and the other of blasting off into outer space. Inward reflection, a box of crayons, and some wise words from mom help the girls to recognize, appreciate, and promote a spirit of friendship and individuality."--Foreword Reviews
