Maria Heater inherited her older brother’s collection of Goosebumps and hasn’t stopped reading since. As a daughter of U.S. diplomats, she grew up in West Africa, the Middle East, and South America, but now calls Colorado home. She started reading the slush pile for agents in 2016 and is now an assistant at an agency in Denver where she lives with her husband, baby, and cats. The only thing that rivals her TBR pile is the list of places she has yet to visit.
