Surrender to Love
: A Story of Second Chances

Click here to join The Diorio Champions!

MaryAnn Diorio writes women’s fiction from a small, quaint, Victorian town in southern New Jersey where neighbors still stop to chat while walking their dogs, houses still sport wide, wrap-around front porches, and the charming downtown still finds kids licking lollipops and old married folks holding hands. A true Jersey girl, MaryAnn is a big fan of Jersey diners, Jersey tomatoes, and the Jersey shore.

Does Your Heart Need Mending?

If so, you’ve found a place of healing here. Welcome! 🙂 

Healing comes in many forms. Here, in my online home, you will find healing through my fiction and, perhaps, through my life coaching as well.

I am a Christ-Follower and a career novelist who writes women’s fiction that offers healing, hope, and happily-ever-after-but in a way you might not expect. 

As a Novelist, I write stories that deal with the tough issues that women face–issues like betrayal, deception, abuse, loneliness, insecurity, toxic relationships, wayward children, and the like. My novels explore how women like you and me face such issues and how we overcome them.

As a Certified Life Coach, I’ve helped countless women find healing and health by overcoming many of  the same issues I write about in my stories. If life coaching interests you, you can learn more about my process at CelebrationLifeCoaching.com.

As one who has been a hurting woman, I can relate to your pain and suffering, and I can offer you hope.

With the above in mind, I invite you to read my fiction. You will find it to be entertaining, educational, and transformational. You will read riveting stories that will keep you turning pages and, perhaps, shed a tear or two or laugh at the irony of life.

If you’re looking for an escape from the daily grind, pick up one of my stories and prepare to be changed from the inside out.


Have you suffered betrayal?

Then you’ll love The Italian Chronicles Trilogy. 

Book 1: The Madonna of Pisano
Book 2: A Sicilian Farewell
Book 3: Return to Bella Terra


Have you experienced prejudice or deception?

Then you’ll love my award-winning novels, In Black and White and Miracle in Milan.
