Press Kit Bio
Maryka Biaggio is a psychology professor turned novelist who specializes in historical fiction based on real people. She loves unearthing the stories of people overlooked by history and bringing them back to life—portraying their challenges and foibles and rekindling their emotional world. Doubleday published her debut novel, PARLOR GAMES, in 2013. Her second novel, EDEN WAITS, was published by Milford House Press in 2019. In 2021, Milford House Press released THE POINT OF VANISHING and in 2022 THE MODEL SPY. Her fiction has won several accolades, including Willamette Writers Award, Oregon Writers Colony Award, Historical Novel Society Review Editors’ Choice, La Belle Lettre Award, a U.P. Notable Books Award (U.P. is the Upper Peninsula of Michigan), and a Regional Arts & Council grant. She has served on the Board of the Historical Novel Society North America Conference since 2015.
She has read at bookstore events, visited numerous book clubs (in person and virtually), given radio interviews, and contributed several guest blogs. She's an avid opera fan and enjoys gardening, art films, and, of course, great fiction. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
She would like to acknowledge grant support from the Regional Arts & Culture Council of Portland, OR, for her current work in progress. Thank you, RACC!
