As a freelance journalist and published author, Marlise Kast-Myers began her career as the youngest celebrity reporter to enter the tabloid world. As one of the industry’s most prolific celebrity journalists, she produced over 200 published articles for Globe and Star magazines in a three-year period.
Those experiences are chronicled in her memoir, Tabloid Prodigy. Since the book’s release, Marlise has been featured in 30 publications, on 80 radio stations and on 14 television shows including CNN, FOX News, CBN, CNBC, CTV, The O’Reilly Factor and Entertainment Tonight.
After leaving the tabloids, Marlise worked as an au pair in Switzerland and traveled internationally as a freelance journalist. Her insatiable hunger for cultures outside her own has taken her to 65 countries and has led to short-term residency in Switzerland, Dominican Republic, Spain and Costa Rica. A regular contributor to sports, travel and business publications, her articles appeared in over 50 magazines including Surfer, Snowboard Journal, San Diego Magazine and Forbes. She has also served as a ghostwriter on six books, photographed images for Surf Guide to Costa Rica (Airborn Media, 2009) and written a manuscript about 40 hikes on Southern California’s Pacific Crest Trail.
Following the release of her memoir, Marlise co-authored several titles for Random House including Fodor’s Travel Guides to Mexico (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013), San Diego (2009, 2010), Cancun In Focus, Puerto Rico (6th & 7th Editions), Panama (2nd Edition), France (2011) and most recently Peru (4th Edition).
As an international journalist, Marlise completed a 13 month surfing and snowboarding expedition through 28 countries. Now based in San Diego with her husband Benjamin Myers (www.benjaminmyersmusic.com), Marlise offers content through the design and marketing firm, Genesis Creative Team.
