Born in Dublin, Maria Duffy knew from an early age that she loved writing, but it never occurred to her that she could pursue the craft as a career. Instead, she began working at a bank after completing a business course. Maria went on to have four children with husband Paddy and became a stay-at-home mum. She had never stopped writing and when her youngest started school, she decided to dust off the book she'd once started. When she began to write again she knew it was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. Any Dream Will Do, her first novel, was published in 2011. After becoming a self-confessed Twitter addict, Maria also began writing a blog for Hello's online magazine entitled 'Stars in the Twitterverse'. To date she has interviewed Eamonn Holmes, Jedward, Keith Barry, Wonderland, Gino d'Acampo and many more. The Letter is Maria's third novel.
