Maura Coughln

Mara Fitzgerald writes YA fantasy about unlikable female characters who ruin everything. She is a biologist by day and spends entirely too much time looking at insects under a microscope. She was born in the same state as Disney World and now lives in the same state as Dollywood, which is just as good. BEYOND THE RUBY VEIL is her first novel.

Her work is represented by Carrie Pestritto of Laura Dail Literary Agency.

She also contributes her unwanted opinions to a blog with her critique partners. The blog in question is called Writer’s Block Party and it’s changing the world, one post at a time. Find it here and rejoice.

Her name is pronounced: MAR-uh (Mar like Mars) Fihtsj – EH – ruhld
