Felicia Marie is a woman who wears numerous hats in her everyday life. A divorced mother of two boys (Richie & Lorenzo) and a business owner, she’s become her champion in life. Although Felicia will be the first to admit that it wasn’t always that way, she didn’t grow up with a white picket fence; her story is quite the opposite.
After years of allowing life wounds to weigh her down, she acknowledged that it was only limiting her potential and made a change. So, she committed herself to let go of a defeatist attitude and look towards the future.
A once stay at home mother she was met with great difficulty when faced with her divorce; having no college education, no career, or even a bank account, she had to create something from scratch. So, she took her “mom skills,” and started selling Italian pastries; launching Holi Cannoli. She quickly landed vital contracts with massive sports arenas and concert venues in the Los Angeles area. Although her company continues to experience growth, Felicia yearned for something more, as she feels she has more to contribute to the world.
She realized by being a business owner that the value of an education is priceless. So she decided to go back to school and complete a college education majoring in Communications at Cal State Fullerton in Southern California.
While there, she discovered writing was not only an interest but was a source of therapy. So she launched Written by a Woman, a site devoted to cooking and traveling.
In addition to the many things that Felicia does, she is beyond excited to be writing her first book about her grandmother coming from Italy after World War II. This thrilling romance is not your typical love story, and Felicia can’t wait for the world to receive it.
Felicia resides in Los Angeles. To stay up to date follow her on Instagram.
