Dr. MaryAnn Diorio was born with a pen in her hand. She has been writing since her teen years when a poem she wrote, entitled “The Beauty of Stars,” won an award in a national poetry contest.

Dr. MaryAnn, as she is affectionately called, loves children, dogs, and chocolate.  Writing is her passion, and writing fiction, in particular.  Her stories deal with the deepest issues of the human heart. She weaves tales in her home writing studio and has been seen writing at Starbuck’s, Panera’s, and in her local Barnes & Noble café. She never leaves town without her laptop, a notebook, and a pen.

MaryAnn resides in New Jersey with her husband Dom, a retired physician. They are blessed with two wonderful daughters, a fantastic son-in-law, and five precious grandchildren.

In her spare time, Dr. MaryAnn loves to read, to paint, and to spend time with her family. She is also an avid tread-miller, aka one who walks on a treadmill for exercise.
