Marisa Mangani's Biography

Member Info

Sarasota, Florida
May 2010

Born and raised in Hawaii, as an executive chef I travelled and worked the US as well as Canada and Australia. Now my day job is designing commercial kitchens, which supports my writing habit; I write every morning from 5:30 to 6:30. Recently I co-wrote Sharkman of Cortez, a memoir of a former commercial shark fisherman  and am concluding my own memoir, Stepping into the Water.
