Maria is a big fan of books, nature, dogs, and pretty things - not always in that order, though.

By day, Maria is a historian who specializes in 19th century New Orleans and 14th century London. What do the two eras have in common? Not much, except for disease, scandal, and crime - Maria's favorite historical topics. (For real, if you want to talk any of the above, just reach out!)

When not digging through the archives, Maria writes romances about strong men and the sassy women who sweep them off their feet.

Her favorite book will always be "Scandal in Spring" by Lisa Kleypas - she's worn the pages so much by re-reading it, but will never give it up.

She loves hearing from readers, so feel free to reach out :)

“Another shrug—the chiffon strap slid even lower. This, Shaelyn decided, was how her cousin attracted hoards of men like bees after nectar. Without even realizing it, Anna reeled them in like bait. Clearly she and her cousin did not share the same genes.”

“He is my ruin. My complete and utter devastation.”

“Pure love. I’ve always wondered what it looks like and now I know. It can easily be confused with constipation, so you have to look closely to distinguish the difference.”
