Mari Toscas, MFA, is the author of three books: Raising a Phoenyx, I'm Never Going to Financially Recover From This, and Cornelia and The Pine Torch.

As the mom of four kids, three with special needs, Mari has personified her Dead Inside But Caffeinated" journey down the motherhood-equivalent of the River Styx via her avatar, "Ma-DAMN Skeleton," who travels into its bowels with her children clinging to her relentlessly.

A poet and artist at heart, Mari alchemizes the painful struggles of motherhood, including autism, and a conglomeration of rich and complex life experiences into macabre, symbolic, and most times hilarious, art and books.
