About Maria

maria_avatar_roundedAfter graduating from the University of Florida in 2002, Maria Mora did what most English majors do:  She disregarded everything she’d learned and jumped into the world of Internet marketing and digital media.

She’s been blogging in various spaces since 2001, back when the cool kids were all on Livejournal.

In 2008, she left the corporate world to pursue a freelance writing career and began this blog to keep in touch with other adult humans. Today, Maria carefully juggles her freelance writing career and occasional fiction writing while single parenting her two young sons.

Chipmunk is seven and Moose is four.
