I was born in Hartford, Connecticut, grew up in and around Providence, Rhode Island, and now live in Portland, Maine with my husband and two sons. I received bachelor’s degrees in Sociology and American Civilization from Brown University and a J.D. from Yale Law School. After all that time in school (20 straight years!), I almost immediately expatriated to Dublin, Ireland where I lived at the YWCA and decided to be a writer.
I have recently come to realize that my passions and interests have not changed significantly since I was a ten year old girl playing baseball in the street with the neighborhood boys. I remain as passionate as ever about books, music, peace and justice, all things Italian, and, of course, baseball. I don’t know why this makes me happy, but it does. -- Maria Testa
