Marilou was born in the Philippines and raised in Wisconsin, and considers herself a Midwesterner at heart. A former technology consultant, she graduated from the University of Notre Dame and holds a master’s degree in industrial/organizational psychology from West Chester University. Today she resides outside of Philadelphia, PA, with her techie husband and three kids, who stump her with questions like “where are all my socks?” and “why didn’t the tooth fairy come last night?”
Marilou’s hobbies include bungee jumping from suspension bridges, skydiving, snacking on raw habanero peppers, extreme breath holding, and–sorry! None of that is true. She doesn’t have a daring bone in her body. Marilou leads a tame life and can usually be found dreaming up her next children’s book.
