Maria Miller has enjoyed writing ever since she was young. Her genres vary, but she likes to include historical events that are never mentioned in history books. She prefers to write about strong, vibrant characters who are as alive as your best friend, and her stories also revolve around a theme. She sometimes uses real events as plots because sometimes nonfiction makes the best fiction! She plans to open an ESL school soon. When not writing, she enjoys relaxing with family.
