Maria started her career as a children’s nurse. She then went on to study a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Aboriginal Studies and Communication Studies. Children’s Literature soon became a new and engaging area of interest for her during this time; one that continues today.
This is Maria’s first publication as an emerging author, and she is currently in the process of writing her next picture book for children.
She feels lucky to be the mother of her four adult children and three grandchildren who live close by on the NSW south coast.
