Mariah Patterson began writing as a child as a way to fill her time when her family moved to an isolated region in Maine. With no close friendships, developing cabin fever from intense snowstorms and only one fuzzy Canadian channel on TV, she created her own world through writing.
She began her career as a newspaper reporter before transitioning into marketing. After her youngest child was born, she left the traditional workplace and now pursues a freelance writing and editing career. An enthusiastic storyteller, she is currently writing a children's book series about a young girl and her love for geology. She is also wrapping up her first full-length, contemporary novel.
Mariah lives in the heart of Maine, but has a fondness for all corners of the state, from the mountains to the coastline.
