Maria Marianayagam

Maria Marianayagam is a Tamil Sri Lankan-Canadian picture book and middle-grade author. She was born in India and grew up in Nigeria and four provinces across Canada.

Maria enjoys writing lyrical picture books centered on STEM, faith, and South Asian culture, as well as high concept middle-grade grounded in culture.

When Maria is not writing, she can be found traveling the world, devouring books, and spending time with her wonderful family. She resides in Alberta, Canada, with her husband and two daughters. Her books include "The Amazing Power of Girls" and the Baby Virtues board book series debuting in January 2024 with "Baby Hope" and "Baby Courage."
