Maria Isabel Pita was born in Havana, Cuba.
Her family left the country when she was ten months old and she grew up in Fairfax, Virginia. Reading, writing and history, especially ancient Egypt, have been her abiding passions ever since she can remember. She attended Florida International University, where she majored in World History and did a double minor in Cultural Anthropology and
English Literature. Maria is well known for her literary erotic romances, two of which are set in
contemporary Egypt, and for her book Guilty Pleasures, a critically acclaimed collection of romantic erotic stories set all through history. 

Truth is the Soul of the Sun is her first biographical novel.
