About me


Hi! I’m Maria. I’m a children’s writer based in Madison, Wisconsin.

I write fiction, nonfiction, and all sorts of educational material for kids of all ages. I love finding ways to engage children with storytelling, interactivity, and humor.

You can find me on Twitter @themepper.

I’m also a member of the Wisconsin chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. And I really like raptors.
