Maria Grace is a mother of two from Southland. Having previously worked with sled dogs in Alaska and the Arctic, she used to want to become a research assistant in Antarctica, or maybe travel there on a literary scholarship. But instead, she has settled on raising a family so now she has an old house, a DIY-loving husband, an ever-hungry Labrador Retriever and a dream that one day she will have more time to write again.
