Maria Imbalzano is a retired matrimonial lawyer who now writes full time. Instead of drafting motions, legal memoranda, and briefs, although fascinating, she now spends her days creating memorable characters and taking them on their emotional journeys through her contemporary romance novels.
In addition to writing fiction, Maria is on the Board of Thomas Edison State University Foundation where she is chair of the Special Events Committee and is very involved with Dress for Success Central Jersey, having been a founding Board member. She also serves on the finance committee for The Present Day Club. She has received the distinguished Family of Edison Award for her work with The Thomas Edison State University Foundation, the Iron Mike Professional Achievement Award from Trenton Catholic Academy and was inducted into the Italian American National Hall of Fame.
Her novel, "Unchained Memories," won the Wisconsin Romance Writers Write Touch Readers' Award and the ACRA Readers' Choice Heart of Excellence Award. "Dancing in the Sand" has garnered many five-star reviews. "Sworn to Forget" is the first of a four-book series being released in July, 2018.
Reading, walking on the beach, spending time with family and friends.
