I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly.
- W. B. Yeats

Hi there! I'm Maria, but you can call me Ria, or just Ree.

I'm a frozen coffee loving, cat adoring/rescuing, music obsessed, trailer making, variety-appreciating professional writer.

I received my degree in Journalism (with a Minor in Writing) from Syracuse University. My poetry has been traditionally published in an academic magazine. Back in the day, I was a columnist and reporter for a few newspapers in central New York. I also blogged for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

At this very moment, I'm probably listening to Aquilo, Bon Iver, EDEN, Fame on Fire, Mayday Parade, Nothing But Thieves, Novo Amor, Parkway Drive, The 1975, The Neighbourhood, The Used, Underøath, or Vancouver Sleep Clinic. I have an undying love for Punk Goes Pop covers, too.

According to Myers-Briggs, I have an INFJ personality type (rarest).

Make no mistake about it, though - this introvert fights relentlessly for what she loves!

My 32 years of life thus far have seen me several lifetimes worth of joy and heartache.

While drawing from these experiences, I've tried to infuse an infinite array of genuine emotions into my stories. So, be prepared to *feel something* if you decide to read my work.

I write to change lives, not to pass the time.

Writing is my passion. Although I usually get very close to conveying my innermost thoughts, it's never quite perfect. So, I keep writing. I'm forever aiming for the dangling carrot that's just out of my reach. It is my greatest pleasure to do so.
