Marilyn, aka Misk Mask, has lived in lots of different countries, as her husband’s employer moves them around the world. They are based out of the UK, where she’s lived for 22-years with her Danish husband. Marilyn has two adopted sons, both grown, one living in the UK and the other living in the USA.
She started writing poetry during the November 2010 Poem-A-Day Challenge with Poetic Asides, and hasn’t stopped writing since. She says it’s a release, like adjusting the value on a pressure cooker. Writing poetry is relaxing, but it can be equally frustrating, lonely, and painful in a sort of cathartic way. It is everything that she didn’t think it would be, and she loves the whole creative process and the people who migrate toward it.
Marilyn is also a keen cook and baker with an active cookery blog, where she enjoys group baking challenges, creating and archiving family-favourite recipes, and photographing food, photography being another hobby. Gardening also ranks up there with her top hobbies.
