Hello, I'm Maria Jo, a Wattpad Star and Paid Stories author. 🐸 (Twitter: MariaJoWrites)

I'm one of many on this site with a disability. In my case, it's a brain injury from two separate accidents. My injury means it is hard to gather my thoughts and hold my concentration - not exactly ideal when you want to write a book. Which is why I joined Wattpad, hoping to find support to keep going.

Olivia & Ricky's Odyssey to Rock Bottom is my long-term project and main focus. Inspired by events from my own life (and sometimes things I planned for the book has happened IRL 🙈).

• I'm Scandinavian, but have family in the US.
• I'm the only girl born into my family for two generations.
• I've been an orphan for over half my life.
• I'm an animal lover, and a lifelong dream is to own a dog. Unfortunately, I can't afford the cost of owning one yet. Patience is a virtue.
• I can't close my eyes completely, so I have to sleep with an applied ointment.
• I'm a nerd and tend to geek out with random projects. So I know a lot of random things.
• I've never tried playing a console video game. 🎮

I don't take reading request. I hardly get any reading done because I'm writing. But you're welcome to PM me anytime. 😊

📍Olivia & Ricky's Odyssey to Rock Bottom is only available here. Should you see it anywhere else, it's stolen. Please contact me if you see a plagiarized edition. Thank you. 🙏
