I have loved to make up stories in my head for as long as I can remember. After several years as a software consultant, I decided to commit those stories to paper. My love of both exciting adventure, laughter, and a happy ending is satisfied by writing thrilling romantic suspense peppered with occasional dashes of humor.

A longtime member of RWA, I served on the board of my local chapter, CoLoNY,  first as Treasurer, then as President. I have also served as Chair of the RWA PRO Steering Committee. When not writing, I enjoy knitting, crocheting, cross stitch, reading, movies, and hiking with my husband and our 12-pound Morkie. You can follow me on Twitter – @MauraTroy – and on Facebook.
