  • Marica has been a health and fitness enthusiast since her early 20s and went on to become a 200-hour certified yoga teacher.
  • She's always curious about the latest shenanigans the royal family is getting up to and loves doing research on royal family protocols and their origins.
  • She co-authored two books titled "The Unofficial Harry Potter Bestiary" and "The Ultimate Wizarding World Guide to Magical Studies."


Marica has been a freelance writer since 2018. She kicked off her career writing articles about the wizarding world for MuggleNet's news team, and she proceeded to land various writing jobs, most notably writing for Bad Yogi's health and fitness blog, Bad Yogi Magazine. Here, she covered everything from women's health to the latest yoga, fitness, beauty, and celebrity news. When she's not reading the latest medical studies about trending beauty treatments, you can find her handing out some skincare advice to her friends over a cup of coffee. One of the highlights of her career so far has been co-authoring two books, and she's currently working on her third.


Marica received a BA in Drama and Theater Arts and a BA Honors in Film and Visual Media. These degrees provide her with unique insight into the entertainment industry and are the reason she knows a thing or two about stage makeup (and all the skin woes that come with using it every day).
