Poet & Children's Author


From Cradle to Brave is my own memoir

It wasnt’ easy to publish, in fact it was probably one of the hardest things I have ever written.

But ‘Strong women’ are ‘strong’  for a reason.  We don’t suddenly arrive with steel in our backbone.  It’s because we’ve fought against demons with one aim in mind – to destroy us!  

My story is just one of millions…  

this book made me cry, I felt as if I was there whilst reading every word

About Maria

Maria is passionate about empowering young girls and women as a direct result of her youngest sister’s suicide and her own life experiences.  

Her unique voice is powerfully moving without literary boundaries.  She uses simplistic language in an easy to read lyrical rhyme and takes her readers on a journey through emotional themes of love and loss, interspersed with uplifting and inspiring poetry.   

She is a strong and motivational voice for women.

As a special thank you for visiting today, I’m also giving away a free copy of my book To Be A Woman.   It’s a short collection of poetry that challenges our gender perceptions about beauty,  our unyielding search for perfection and societal roles.  It’s a short, brief inspiring read and my beautiful niece is on the front cover, which makes it extra special to me.
