Maria Ribbing Cornell

Author, Partner & Creative Consultant

Whether pretending to be a runaway orphan or an undercover courier, one of Maria’s favorite memories of growing up is playing and making up stories with her sister. Later in life, she enjoyed coming home after a day’s work in an elementary school, to sing and share stories with her two children. Maria grew up in Stockholm, Sweden and moved to the United States in her twenties. She has a Master of Education in Reading. Currently, she resides in Fairfax, VA with her husband, son, and two dogs. Together with her son, Nicholas, she continues to create stories and is very excited to share their first published book The Boy and the Tree with you.
