Maria Leahey


Maria Leahey picked up bus driving when her family was hit hard by the recession of 2009. She took on bus driving because she figured that job would never be outsourced overseas. The silver lining in this economic cloud was that she loved the job and wrote about it frequently on facebook. Friends and family encouraged her to collect her posts into a book. This is her first book. She lives in Texas with her husband and teenagers.
