Meet Maureen

Run is my debut work of fiction and I have deep roots to the story. I am the daughter of an Irish immigrant and a Southern woman from Kentucky. My Nana came to the US with a few dollars in her pocket and a 2 year old, my Pops. She was kind, loving, funny, superstitious and a no-nonsense woman. Her name was Rose Crossan and she came from a hard and violent world in southern Ireland in the 1920's. Coming to the United States, like my main character, Bridie, was her saving grace. You'll meet my Nana in my character, Aunt Rose.

Professionally, I am a Harvard University graduate, from the last class of Radcliffe College (magna cum laude). With an M.B.A. from the University of Albany, I work as a business strategist and help others reach their dreams.

Some of you may know me from Distinctively Diva , an online community of fabulous women. I am the co-author of the non-fiction book, I Am Diva, Every Woman’s Guide to Outrageous Living (Grand Central Publishing 2003), Take Five: The Diva Guide to Pampering (kindle) and The Daily Diva Word: Little Ditties to Lift Your Spirits.
So if you are a lover of mysteries, like I am, I hope you will settle in and listen to the Run Podcast. I think you'll like it.
