About Maria

Maria Samurin is an author from Toronto, Ontario.

Maria knew she wanted to be a writer from an early age. As a preschooler, Maria would tell her parents bedtime stories every night, not the other way around. When she was 14, Maria began writing a science fiction novel with her childhood best friend. BattleField took 14 years to complete.

In 2014, Maria started a Writers' Group called Scarborough Scribblers. She developed the Scribbler Method, an original technique to help find inspiration, jump-start the imagination, stop procrastination, and say goodbye to Writers Block for good. The Scarborough Scribblers have published Impromptu: An Anthology (2017) and Library Reflections: An Anthology (2016).

Maria also belongs to the Vaughan Writers' Club, where she enjoys socializing and collaborating with other authors and every year in November, Maria participates in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).

Maria also writes teen fiction and romance under pseudonyms.

When she's not writing fiction, Maria works for the Toronto Public Library.
