Here’s the fancy bio.

Maria Mora is Content Director at Big Sea in St. Petersburg, Florida. She’s been working and writing on the web since 2002 after receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in English at the University of Florida. Maria’s articles on topics such as parenting, feminism and conservation have been featured at SheKnows, Cafe Mom, Azula, and Yahoo Parenting.

Maria is the single mom of two boys, and she shares her home with two Muppet-shaped rescue dogs. She loves high stakes, swoony romance, and rooting for the underdog. She will write for stickers.

I was a Pitch Wars mentee in the fall of 2015 and I recommend this experience to any author. It isn’t about getting an agent, it’s about joining a community who cares about writing as much as you do.

The result is a newfound ability to revise and polish—and a bunch of new friends and CPs and comrades in the wild journey to the shelves.
