Theresa Maggio grew up in the New Jersey Meadowlands, the granddaughter of Sicilian immigrants. She has worked as a science writer at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, as a reporter for Brattleboro, Vermont's daily paper, The Reformer and as a freelance travel writer. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, the Financial Times, London Daily Telegraph, Miami Herald and the New York Daily News, among other publications. She is the author of Mattanza, which was named one of the Best Nonfiction Books of 2000 by the Los Angeles Times and the Christian Science Monitor.
She lives and writes, very happily, in Vermont, but every so often needs a dose of Sicilian sun.
