About the author

Maria Pease

Maria Pease is a writer originally from Long Island, N.Y. She is one of seven kids falling in line at number six. Growing up she was very shy and quiet and spent most of her childhood pretending. She has always loved everything about a good story and writing them seemed to come naturally.

It wasn't until her son Steven was about ten that she began writing seriously. It all started when he asked to stay up a little later than his seven-year-old sister Ali. Trying to discourage this, she told him he could, but there would be no TV. The deal was that he could either read or write. He agreed and she found herself in a situation, if he couldn't watch TV, neither could she. 

That's when Samantha Parker was born. The thing is, every night after Steven went to bed, she stayed up writing and before she knew it, she had written Malicious Intent A Sam Parker Mystery. 

Now she has just released her second book in the series, Malicious secrets A Sam Parker Mystery. This fast-paced detective mystery finds Samantha Parker in some compromising situations as she works her caseload. Financial scams, cheating spouses, missing persons, and deviant behaviors are just the tip of the iceberg, but with her sense of humor intact and her lucky undies to give her confidence, she's ready for whatever comes her way.

Maria lived in Temecula, California for 22 years. She now makes lovely Southport, North Carolina her home. Visit her website at www.mariapease.com for news, articles about writing, new book news and more.
