Maria McKenzie


I live in Cincinnati with my husband and two boys. In addition to writing, I'm a small business owner.

I was a librarian for several years, and librarian, of course, equals book lover! I enjoy curling up with a good book when not writing, or daydreaming about a new novel to write. I'm a sucker for a good love story, and live on a steady reading diet of romantic suspense, thrillers, historical fiction and non-fiction, and biographies.

I've always been a daydreamer, but didn't enjoy reading until I discovered Nancy Drew at age 10. As for writing, I never thought I'd actually pen a novel. I'm not a talker, so how could I ever fill up a book? As a quiet person, I internalize a lot. And later in life I discovered that internalizing can create some wonderful stories!

I love movies, museums, antiquing and flea markets. I'm also a foodie, partial to spicy ethnic cuisines. I enjoy working out and my morning run/walk provides a great opportunity to develop story ideas--if I'm not listening to an audio book!
