Her book Mr. Tanen’s Ties won several state reading awards which motivated her to write two more titles: Mr. Tanen’s Tie Trouble and Mr. Tanen’s Ties Rule! Maryann lives and works in New Hampshire with her husband, Eric, and their daughters, Janine and Kristin, who have inspired many books over the years.
