Maryka Biaggio

Fiction Writer

Author's Bio

Maryka Biaggio, Ph.D., is a psychology professor turned novelist who specializes in historical fiction based on real people. She enjoys the challenge of starting with actual historical figures and dramatizing their lives—figuring out what motivated them to behave as they did, studying how the cultural and historical context may have influenced them, and recreating some sense of their emotional world through dialogue and action. Doubleday published her debut novel, PARLOR GAMES, in 2013. EDEN WAITS was published by Milford House Press in 2019. It was an Editors' Choice in the February 2020 issue of Historical Novels Review. She lives in Portland, Oregon, that edgy green gem of the Pacific Northwest.
