About the Author
Maria Elizabeth Romana is a second-generation Italian-American with a background in mathematics, business, and research. In other words, she's a straight-up geek...with a side of pasta. By day, she's all numbers, but at night, she transforms into Word Woman, writing about the same kinds of people and places and events that colored her make-believe world as a child. Maria prefers characters who are smart, sensitive, and strong-willed, but like you and me, not without flaws, and she likes to give those characters cool mysteries to solve, crises to encounter, and folks to fall in love with. But most importantly, she tries to do it all with a dash of humor. (And full disclosure: the headshot is at least ten years old. Maria has a lot more wrinkles and gray hair now. ;))
