About this author

Meteorologist turned novelist, Maria's been writing fantasy and science fiction since she was bored at work and needed something creative to do. A dozen novels and numerous short stories later, Maria's learned a thing or three about writing. She’s been on the New York Times bestseller list, won a half-dozen awards, and has earned her MA degree in Writing from Seton Hill University where she's been happily sharing her knowledge with the current crop of MFA students. She also enjoys creating new worlds where horses and swords rule, 'cause let's face it, they're cool, although she's been known to trap her poor characters in a giant metal cube and let them figure out how to get out. Readers are welcome to check out her website for book excerpts...more


Today, I'm thrilled to be hostingauthor Mindy Klasky! She is launching hernew Diamond Brides series this month and has written a wonderful post about how she turns a stock character into a complex and unique individual. Since Mindy's one of my BFs, I had the pleasure of reading the first book in the series, PERFECT PITCH. I'll admit, I'm not a fan of baseball - the game is too slow for me, but...

“Yelena, you've driven me crazy. You've caused me considerable trouble and I've contemplated ending your life twice since I've known you." Valek's warm breath in my ear sent a shiver down my spine.

"But you’ve slipped under my skin, invaded my blood and seized my heart.”

“That sounds more like a poison than a person,” was all I could say. His confession had both shocked and thrilled me.

“Exactly,” Valek replied. “You have poisoned me.”
Maria V. Snyder, Poison Study

“Everyone makes choices in life. Some bad, some good. It's called living, and if you want to bow out, then go right ahead. But don't do it halfway. Don't linger in whiner's limbo.”
Maria V. Snyder, Poison Study

“There's always another storm. It's the way the world works. Snowstorms, rainstorms, windstorms, sandstorms, and firestorms. Some are fierce and others are small. You have to deal with each one separately, but you need to keep an eye on whats brewing for tomorrow.”
Maria V. Snyder, Fire Study

“Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.”
Thomas Edison

“If we look back into history for the character of present sects in Christianity, we shall find few that have not in their turns been persecutors, and complainers of persecution. The primitive Christians thought persecution extremely wrong in the Pagans, but practised it on one another. The first Protestants of the Church of England, blamed persecution in the Roman church, but practised it against the Puritans: these found it wrong in the Bishops, but fell into the same practice themselves both here and in New England.

[Letter to the London Packet, 3 June 1772]”
Benjamin Franklin, The Life and Letters of Benjamin Franklin

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
Calvin Coolidge

“Nothing says you care for me better than offering to torture my enemies."

He grinned. "No sense doing things halfhearted. And to think, some girls have to endure listening to poetry.”
Maria V. Snyder, Outside In

“You had lots of visitors, but they were all quiet."

"Oh real funny. Tease the blind man."

I'm glad you've enjoyed my books. I'm working on new Study books - with SHADOW STUDY coming out in 2015. Have you read my Inside Out and Outside In? They're a bit different than my others, but I still have a strong female protagonist and page-turning adventures for the characters :)

The new Study book should be coming out in late 2014 - not sure exactly when, but not before September. I haven't started it yet, but it's due to my editor by this time next year :)


TaleTerror Loving the Australian covers of your Healer series! (Trying to get my hands on the re-released Touch of Power cover) Just as I still love the Study series covers! Can not wait until Taste of Death, how far along are you writing that?? And when are you going to start writing book 4, for the Study series?!

I have been rereading it every month. I love your writing style and how you portray the characters. I know you spend a lot of time on them because they come out to be flawless.


Rainenoelle Hi Maria,

I just wanted to express to you what an impact your Study series has made on me. From the first time I read Poison Study (just last week), I knew from that point on you shot up to the top spot as my favorite author. I seriously have not been so obsessed with a series since reading Harry Potter back when it first came out. I can't wait to read your other books!

Your talented writing has totally "poisoned" me!

Keep those great books coming

You are the most amazing author... I could just kidnap you and force you to write stories just for me... Jokes, but you really are. The Study series I have read over and over, and A Touch Of Power is just a well written!!

Yelena, Avry and Opal are my heroes. If only they were real...

Thanks for accepting my friend request! I can't wait for the next story in the healer series!!! <3

(P.S. I'm not as mad as I sound in this...)

Mollie Thank you for accepting my friend request! I posted my review of Poison Study recently--what a breath of fresh air for me! I cannot tell you how much I appreciated how fast the plot was paced, but I just downloaded my sample of the next book in the series and Touch of Power. :]

Thank you for your wonderful comments! I write books that I enjoy reading, I focus on the characters first and then worry about the plot as I write. It seems to be a good combination for me - I hope it will continue to "work" :)
