Happy Holidays!

The holidays are upon us! Here's wishing you a happy Thanksgiving 🦃and a very Merry Christmas! 🎄 What are your plans for Thanksgiving?


Christmas Bazaar & Craft Show

My favorite author event of the year is my church's Christmas Bazaar & Craft Show! I will be available to autograph paperbacks of the Not Again duology, Not Again and Not Again The Fallout. I will also have functional (I put the fun in functional. See Super Swag graphic below) swag. Books make the perfect Christmas gifts! 📚🎁

Come find a treasure for the holidays, or spend a fun day walking around and admiring some local crafts, art and products from 40+ vendors. There will also be food & desserts available to purchase, and don’t forget about the awesome Hope Student Ministries’ FLEA MARKET.

Hope Community Church: Gilbertsville, PA


Maria's Birthday Bash!

You're invited to celebrate my birthday on Sunday, November 19 in both of my book groups, Maria's Muses: Inspirational, Christian & Close-to-the Heart Readers and Books "R" Us. This is a two-group extravaganza to embrace turning two nickles—the BIG 55! Various genres will be showcased, something for everyone! If you are an author contact me to sign up. Family friendly! 🥳
