am a Runner is
about surviving sepsis, a coma, and amputation. Maria has a BBA
with an emphasis in Human Resources, and has worked for Fed-Ex for
twenty years. As an athlete she has many accomplishments. Before her
battle with the river of death she’d competed and ran in multiple
5K’s. She was told she’d never run again. She proved the naysayers
wrong. Her athletic accomplishments include running in a 5K, and a
mother, author, and time traveling adventurer. Born and raised in
Newport, RI where history is a way of life, Pamela
now lives on the Space Coast of Florida, a hop, skip, and jump from
Orlando, where imagination and fantasy abounds. With the love of
reading, she graduated to writing non-fiction, historical fiction,
time travel, and children’s preschool/first reader books.
