  • Marica has been a freelance writer since 2018, writing in a wide variety of niches.
  • She's been a health and fitness enthusiast since her early 20s and went on to become a 200-hour certified yoga teacher.
  • She co-authored a book in 2020 titled "The Unofficial Harry Potter Bestiary," which is available wherever books are sold.


Originally a Drama and Theater Arts graduate with an honors degree in Film and Visual Media, Marica started to pursue writing full-time after graduation. She kicked off her career by starting to work as a journalist for MuggleNet's news team, and from there, she pursued other projects, most notably writing for Bad Yogi's health and fitness blog. As a certified yoga teacher, she knows a thing or two about the fitness industry and specializes in writing about all things health and fitness-related. One of the highlights of her career so far has been co-authoring the "Unofficial Harry Potter Bestiary." She's also one of the hosts for MuggleNet's podcast "Promptly Potter."


Marica received a BA in Drama and Theater Arts and a BA Honors in Film and Visual Media at the University of the Free State. These degrees provided her with unique insight into the entertainment industry and taught her that playing it safe is risky — you need to go out there and create your own destiny.
