By the age of four, bilingual Greek native Maria Messini had taught herself how to read all the nursery rhymes she could get her hands on. Her twenties were all about modern classics, then came a love affair with thrillers. It wasn’t until a chance meeting with Rhonda Nelson’s The Specialist, that Maria discovered romance, and she has been an unapologetic romance reader ever since.
After a difficult period in her life, Maria turned to writing and despite it taking her four years to pluck up the courage to write a book from scratch, these days there is no stopping her.
In 2013 she set up her popular blog MM Jaye Writes where she shares her experiences of self-publishing and hosts other writers willing to share theirs. In November 2014, she published her first novel, a contemporary romance entitled Fate Accompli, the first in her Aegean Lovers series. Maria is currently penning Fate Captured, a prequel novella in her Aegean Lovers series, set in the beautiful island of Alonissos where her husband proposed.
Penning under MM Jaye, Maria also teaches translation and translates on the side. She lives in Athens with her husband, daughter and Kindle.
