Maureen Gualtieri has lived in Toronto her entire life. She has just graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in English, having focused on theatre and text. Her produced plays include Chopsticks at the Beg Borrow and Steal Festival, Monkey Love at the Toronto Fringe (both in 2007), and Afterimage at U of T in 2004. When not writing, Gualtieri can be found exploring High Park, riding her bike along the lake, or baking copious amounts of cookies.
