Maria Savva was born in London on 19th March 1970. She studied for a Law Degree at Middlesex University and went on to gain a professional solicitor qualification at The College of Law in London. She qualified as a solicitor in 1996. Maria continues to practice as a solicitor in London whilst writing her novels and stories in her spare time.

She was able to read before starting school, and on her first day at infants school, she remembers reading a story to another child in the class. Maria was immediately moved into the second year class, being too advanced for the first year. She has always been a bookworm and favourite books from her childhood include, Alice in Wonderland, The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe, and Swallows and Amazons. By the age of seven Maria had read most (if not all) of the books in the school library. During her teenage years she read probably all of the Mills & Boon titles available, and would often help out in the school library. She then went through a phase of enjoying horror and thriller books. Authors that Maria admires include Paulo Coelho, Maeve Binchy, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Stephen King and Marian Keyes. After reading Paulo Coelho’s book, ‘The Alchemist’, Maria was inspired to try to write her first novel. These days, Maria enjoys reading all types of books and in particular chooses books to read by less well-known authors to support fellow independent writers. She enjoys reviewing books when she gets the time.

Maria has always enjoyed creative writing. She began work on her first novel ‘Coincidences’ in 1997 when she found herself out of work. The positive feedback she has received for her work from fellow authors and fans maintains her enthusiasm and passion for writing.
