Mary Lotorto-Soroka

Biography

I lived most of my life in Clifton, New Jersey and recently moved to Little Egg Harbor. My daughter and myself love the shore life and all the beautful nature it abounds.
I was an accountant for over twenty years and when my daughter was only three, decided to switch gears and do something I've always wanted to do: write and illustrate children's books. My recent career shift has brought me the time I needed and wanted to have with my beautiful daughter.
