Newly available through the auspices of the BooksBnimble imprint, In a former life, Marika spent 13 years as a front line employee for Continental Airlines. She traveled the world and visited The Tower of London, the Coliseum, Neuschwanstein Castle and even attended a game at Fenway Park seated right next to The Green Monster. (Yes, it was awesome.) In her tenure at Continental, she swears that she never lost your bag. She also worked at the St. Petersburg Times, first as a copy clerk and then in the composing room where she learned the lost art of paste up. It was here that she learned a little about the publishing business and gained a great respect for anyone that works at a daily newspaper and election night pizza parties. This was her first and last glamorous photo.
