Hello, my name is Maria Gorman. I was born to Italian immigrant parents and I grew up in Baltimore, MD. We were a typical Italian family, we spoke Italian in the house, ate Italian meals every day, and celebrated most holidays with a fabulous, fun group of Italians who came over to the US with my parents. They all had kids my age, so we had a great time growing up in this crazy Italian lifestyle.
I found a passion for reading while in elementary school, which probably helped me with my English, since I spoke only Italian as a child. Reading opened my mind to imagination and with that I always found myself creating stories in my head.
I guess you could call me a closet writer. I had and still have journals and notebooks filled with stories, pieces of stories, diary entries, poems...so many things. I loved to write.
Fast forward to last year when I self-published my first book "Chatter in the Halls."
Today, an empty nester, I live in Mt. Airy, MD with my husband and a crazy cat named KIP.
