Her street creds say it all: First victim of Dartman, creator of a consulting company in commercial credit analysis that spawned a billion-dollar industry, thrown out of a cult for disruption, and fired from nearly every senior-level job for insubordination. It's no wonder she proclaimed herself the Queen of Snark.
After leaving her former profession in international commercial banking,
she fine-tuned her comedy chops in a more constructive manner. In eight years Maura wrote four full-length novels, won two national book awards and received critical acclaim from the Midwest Book Review and Readers’ Favorite. Plus prolific articles, short stories, and blog posts peppering the internet. Not the kind to rest on her laurels, Maura has still quite a few tales that will make their way in the near future.
