Hi! My name is Maria McDaniel.

Version 3

I live in Tokyo with my husband (the love of my life) and my three crazy kids who have a penchant for keeping things interesting. Ah, if these walls could speak….

I write about friendship stumbling into love, and nightmares, come to life, promising to take everything. 

Currently I’m seeking representation for my debut novel, The Dandelion 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.
