"Some innocents 'scape not the thunderbolt." --Shakespeare
Maria Sansalone lives in Massachusetts, with her husband, a college math professor, and a 10-year-old house bunny named Aurora. They honor the memory of their son, William, by working with Griffin's Friends Children's Cancer Fund, promoting geoscience, supporting childhood cancer awareness, and through her stories they know he would have loved to have heard.
Life's turns are such that Maria is working on a master's in education with certification in special education (moderate disabilities). This, after realizing how important story elements are to all our lives: In 2013, Maria completed a Master of Arts in Oral Traditions (doing some awesome research on the influence of contemporary dragons) from The Graduate Institute. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from American International College. She has been very fortunate to work as part of the editorial team for Merriam-Webster, the dictionary publishers, as an associate editor (in cross-reference) for the past 24 years. As you probably can tell, Maria loves digital literacy, loves Storytelling, and loves working in HTML.
Besides cross-reference contributions to some of Merriam-Webster's most important references, Maria Sansalone is traditionally published as the story editor and parent co-author of the first edition of Childhood Brain & Spinal Cord Tumors, 2001 CR, O'Reilly. Dragon Fights For Good: We Walk As One is her first self-published story.

I love legends, myths; the obscure truths on the fringes of our reality. In every myth is a little truth, a little glimpse further into our humanity. Maria has brought the legend of the dragons into out own day and age, weaving a well written tapestry of believable characters interposed around the central independent stories that comprise the myth. Entertaining enough for children, enthralling enough for adults; this is one read I can't recommend highly enough! Welcome to Smashwords, Maria. I'll be anxiously awaiting your next read.
