MaryAnn Minatra is a wife, mom, grandmother, writer, and corgi lover. MaryAnn makes her home at opposite ends of the US–part of the time in Alaska, and part of the time in Arizona.

Author of five published historical fiction books, MaryAnn is currently writing her fifth children’s book, Tea with Mr. Churchill.  She also has a contemporary novel set for eBook release in 2017. The Witness, inspired by a true story, is about a teenage daughter’s journey through her mother’s murder trial.

MaryAnn is an avid reader and dedicated Churchillian. She loves spending time with her family and five grandchildren. She also enjoys playing tennis or wandering through quaint bookstores with a good cup of coffee. MaryAnn always has a coffee and a humorous Corgi named Daisy at her side.
