Maricor, or Marshi to family and friends, is an accountant by profession. She grew up and studied in Leyte, Philippines. She considers her faith and family to be most important to her. A friend once joked that if she joined a beauty pageant, she would win the Miss Congeniality award hands down. She finds joy in meeting new people and developing beautiful friendships. If she isn’t spending time with her family, she keeps herself busy in the kitchen preparing food for her kids. She loves Hawaiian pizza, which some say is not a real pizza.
Maricor and her family lived in Amsterdam between 2018 and 2019, and are presently residing in Metro Manila, Philippines. Walking Beside Me is her first book.
