About Maria

When I was in sixth grade, I learned about meteorologists and decided I wanted to be one. My visions of chasing tornados throughout the Midwest and flying through hurricanes didn’t pan out. Mostly because I sucked at forecasting, and my grades weren’t exactly stellar. Let’s face it, I’m a daydreamer – always have been, always will be.

I did graduate from Penn State University and was hired as an environmental meteorologist (try to say that five times fast!) and I started writing when bored at work. It’s never a good idea to get caught just staring out the window, so I wrote my daydreams down. After fooling around with short stories, I wrote my first novel, Poison Study. It was published sixteen years later. A lesson in patience and persistence! I had caught the writing bug and Magic Study and Fire Study soon followed. I continued with my Glass Series (Storm Glass, Sea Glass and Spy Glass) and now Inside Out.

I love my new job. Where else can you take fencing lessons, learn how to ride a horse, study martial arts, learn how to pick a lock, take glass blowing classes and get a personal tour of a maximum security prison and call it all research? I’ll give you a hint – not working as a meteorologist. Another joy of being a writer is communicating with my readers. All are welcome to contact me, feel free to check out my website!
