What is your latest release
and what genre is it?
3 – It’s a collection of short stories
3 short stories. Dark fiction – one of the stories has a chilling paranormal theme. The first story is about a young man who has kept a devastating secret for most of his life. The second is about a girl who decides to look for her childhood best friend and makes a shocking discovery. The third story is about a young girl who relives a dark childhood memory.
Maria devoured books as a child (not literally, of course). She remains an avid reader/bookworm and can usually be found with a book/Kindle in her hand. She worked as a lawyer for 15 years, and now works at a legal advice centre in a university. She’s published 5 novels, a novella (co-authored by Jason McIntyre), and numerous collections of short stories. Her short stories also appear in the BestsellerBound Anthologies, and in the Mind’s Eye series of books.
Maria is also a music blogger for the UK Arts Directory.

What are you working on now?
I’m working on a second edition of my novel, A Time to Tell, and a new collection of mixed-genre short stories.
(And here is an update on that new collection, Far Away in Time, that previously ran on Reading Recommendations!)
Maria’s reading recommendation:
Andrew Peters. If you haven’t read his Blues Detective series of books, you’re missing out on some hilarious comedy. He also writes more serious crime fiction, like his novel Joe Soap, and short stories that are quite dark, like his collection Solos. A very talented author.
