About Maria Hammarblad
Maria with Benny, a Cat Depot cat
Originally born in Sweden, Maria came to the US late 2008 and settled down in the Tampa Bay area. She showed a large interet for books - and space - at an early age, and becoming a science fiction writer seemed quite logical.
After nearly a decade in the USA, she returned to Sweden late 2016, and today she lives in the countryside with her rescue dogs and cats.
When not writing, she works for SPCA Florida and runs a small media company. Maria also plays the bass and volunteers at a local cat rescue.
