Hi! My name is Maria McDaniel.

Version 3

I live in Tokyo, Japan with my husband (the love of my life), and my three crazy kids who have a penchant for keeping things interesting.

I hope to become a published author, a dream that unexpectedly resurfaced a few years ago. Currently I’m seeking representation for my debut novel, The Yellow Girl.

Until then, I’ll be writing more about my ongoing journey toward publication, about life on this side of the planet and what I’m learning along the way.
