Maria and her friends have figured out middle school for the most part, but figuring out some of their new friends is another story. Things can turn upside down very quickly, if you aren’t prepared. Maria and her friends find out that they need to be on their game to stay ahead, in more ways than one. Acceptance by peers is hard enough, but when you add attitude, teenage emotions, drama, deception and school work...Look Out! When it comes to having an interest in boys, things start to heat up and the fire ignites! The girls experience a rollercoaster ride of emotions with a girl named, Tori, who brings drama like no one else. Choosing the right words in situations can mean all the difference; and Maria shocks her peers when she shows humility, in a huge way, to help someone who is her biggest rival. Maria’s positive attitude makes all the difference, and she finds herself shooting for the prize of the moon, but yet reaches for the stars of a more valuable outcome.

Since I was very young, the love for books has always been in my heart. I have always wanted to write books, and now that time has come. I grew up in Point Pleasant, New Jersey and later moved to other sections of Jersey over the years. I am truly a Jersey Shore Girl, and love going to the beach whenever I can. I enjoy lying in the sun and reading a good book, which is how I spend any free time I have. Currently I live in Apopka, Florida and enjoy living near several different beaches. I am happily married and have three sons: Devin, Kyle and Dominick. I have always wanted to have a little girl, but that was not what happened. By writing my teenage series books, it has allowed me to unlock the young girl within me again. Writing allows me to escape to a world that I control and it is very liberating. The power of thought allows anything to happen or be changed, in all in the hit of the keys on the computer. As an author, you have the chance to create characters and make them really come to life. The power to create situations, and develop stories in the fictitious world that you design is like a wild-ride, but one that you can fully control. Writing my book series, “Maria And The Teenage Divas”, has been an awesome adventure for me. I work hard to make my books relatable to teens, and give them positive and motivating ideas to hold on to for life. Working in the school system for ten years as a substitute teacher, I have seen many miss-guided kids that could use the uplifting ideas in my book. Teenage years can be difficult for many, and the decisions made during this time can be life-altering. I believe, that if you give someone the right tools or information, it can change their lives forever. Most people don’t live lives of the rich and famous, but a rich life to me is more than money. Being truly rich, is the success you make of it. Meaning; what brings you a happy heart, that fills your joy and not what the world suggests to be fulfillment. Also, developing true friendships, can make the difference in achieving your goals! You have choices every day all day. My books allow me to just let my imagination run free, and hopefully they will inspire others to be the best that they can be.
