M. L. Mastran
M. L. was born in Scranton Pennsylvania but was raised in Youngstown, Ohio, which is also where she currently resides with her husband and son. Since a young age, she has always had a passion for storytelling. Anything that was of interest to her she could find a story with however, it was her stories of experiences such as walking in an old cemetery, to riding a roller coaster to walking the lonely isles of an old junk yard that seemed the most precious.
M. L. has an undergraduate degree in Communication but also majored in History, which is what her Master’s Degree is in as well. She also started on her PHD in History. This love of history is very evident in most of M. L.’s stories. While studying for both degrees, she wrote numerous works for the academic audience. Many of which were presented and published for both student and professional audiences, but at home she would continue to dabble with her love of fiction. It was the challenge of creating a new world and characters that would make for some great stories. In fact, she found out very quickly, strong characters drive the story and make it worth the journey.
Most of her writing comes from her literary and movie loves and inspirations. Some of her favorite TV shows (including ‘of all time’) are Charmed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, the Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. One of her favorite authors is Anne Rice however, she is also a huge J.R.R. Tolkien fan and has read nearly all Tolkien works: her favorite book OF ALL TIME is The Silmarillion. Among her favorite movies are Gone with the Wind, Nosferatu (1922), Practical Magic, Reign of Fire, Braveheart, Gladiator and Lord of the Rings.
M. L. has always lived by the philosophy so eloquently told by Helen Keller: “Life is either a great adventure or nothing.” She loves the outdoors and is a frequent camper. She also loves the water and in the summer if not poolside, can be found on a boat or jet ski. She also loves snowmobiling and in the winter months can be found with the family on a snowmobile trail in the middle of the forest.
