About Maria

I’m a Jersey-born girl who loves to read and now write. Ever since I was a child, I would get so completely entranced by a book that I wouldn’t want to put it down. I love meeting new characters, learning about their problems, and watching them fall in love. A romantic at heart, reading about happily-ever-afters gave me the hope that no obstacles were too hard to overcome.

When I was in high school I had started writing poems and even wrote a short story. College, work, and family took precedence over any need to write and it wasn’t until a few years ago that I started to write.

I am a member of Romance Writers of America, New Jersey Romance Writers, and RWA Online. I live in New Jersey with my husband and children and write in my “spare” time between juggling a full-time job and my kid’s busy schedules.  My contemporary romance, Untangle My Heart, will be published by The Wild Rose Press in 2014.
