About Maria

I’m a freelance writer based in Annapolis, Md. I specialize in food, parenting and business stories. I’ve published stories in local and national publications, including Latitudes and Attitudes, AIR Daily, Gannett Suburban Newspapers (Now the Journal-News) ParentMap, The Costco Connection, What’s Up Annapolis, Bay Weekly and OnTap D.C. I was a regular contributor to ParentMap and The Costco Connection when I lived in Seattle and I was a regular contributor to What’s Up Annapolis and Bay Weekly before that. I write a weekly family-relationships blog called “Hereditary Insanity” at www.mariabellosfisher.com/blog. I was a national reporter and editor for five years, trained at Gannett and Inside Washington Publishers. I am working on a novel, a young-adult memoir and children’s picture books.

  1. I love your blog. I am a wife, a mother of a 16 month old daughter and I have a full time career. As I read your entries, it’s as if you are taking the words right out of my mouth. Thank you, your blog is theraputic for me – mentally and emotionally. Blessings!

  2. Hi, I’m Jesse

    I’m a newbie entrepreneur. I’ve created an awesome calendar I think your readers will love: http://NeuYear.net
    It’s stylish, slightly innovative, and super useful for planning goals and dominating 2013.

    I was wondering if I could send you one for free?
    If so, email me your address!

    If you like it, I’d love to partner and:
    – offer a giveaway of some calendars to your readers
    – offer your readers a 30% off discount code
    – offer you $5 per sale you refer (I use neuyear.zferral.com)

    Not only will your readers benefit, you’ll get a little money too, just in time for the holidays.


    Email me your address and I’ll send you a free calendar!
