Christopher and Marlene Powers (13 years of marriage and 4 kids strong)
My name’s Chris Powers. I was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but grew up, mostly, in South Florida. The Oakland Park, Fort Lauderdale area. Life’s adventures have moved me to San Diego, California, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, Anchorage, Alaska, Chicago (and the suburbs), Illinois, and Columbus, Ohio. Now I’m living in Panama City, Panama, where I’ve been for going on four years.
I started Panama For Real because I’d spent time traveling around Panama for a successful online publisher based here in Panama, and I just felt that there was a wider audience for this info. Not only the wealthy should benefit from insider information. I’m here and I’m learning new stuff all the time, so why not share that with others dreaming of making the same move.
In addition to writing about Panama, I also write fiction. I recently published my novel, Mirror Images Book 1: The Darkness of Man. I also just finished the first draft of Mirror Images Book 2: Sons of Man and hope to publish it soon. You can find book 1 for Kindle here: http://www.amazon.com/Mirror-Images-Book-The-Darkness-ebook/dp/B007V9GQ7Y
Now let me introduce you to my wife and partner, Marlene Bonilla de Powers.
Marlene Bonilla de Powers
Aside from being super hot and a wonderful mother, Marlene has traveled all over the place with me. She’s an expert behind the camera and most importantly, she understands the vision that I have for Panama For Real. In fact, in many ways, she has opened my eyes and helped me expand that vision to what it is now. Passionate about her heritage, Marlene really gets it. She knows that foreigners and Panamanians alike can benefit from knowing more about her country.
Born and raised in Panama City, she remembers spending a great deal of her childhood traveling to the interior provinces to visit family. She has family in David, Boquete, and Penonome, and some of her fondest childhood memories involve horse riding on her grandfather’s farm, eating raspados (snow cones) on the way to Volcan, swimming in rivers in David, and showering in the waterfalls all over this country.
Now, when I’m not dragging her all over the place during the weekends, she’s busy at her full-time job and raising our four children.
