I’ m an author who believes in diversity:

I grew up in an Italian American family in an Italian neighborhood located in Bensonhurst Brooklyn, New York. Like other young people, I had my dreams, but for me, that meant doing them all. I’ve always had a passion and love for cooking. It started when I was young and growing up. My writing was something that came along later in my life! My first two books were influenced by my love for cooking, one about Lifestyle Changes, and the other all about Pizza! Yes, they are very different subjects! My latest books are novels and not about cooking. One is a Memoirist story based on the true-life experiences of an individual I knew well, also from Brooklyn, New York! We grew up together! It’s all about what he did and how he did it. His accomplishments, failures, loves, and losses. You know… the good, the bad, and the ugly of life! My newest novel is a Fictional Psychological Mystery. It’s based on Rebecca a Valley Girl, who is now a millionaire and retired. She was the President of a large Silicon Valley Company. She now has everything anyone could ever ask for; beauty, health, expensive car, mansion, freedom, and a dream that haunts her!

I do hope you enjoy reading all my books!   GJM

Author GJ Maresca

Most people never heard of me! But, I’ve been cooking for over 65 years! My cookbooks share my passion for creating great food!! I promise you, once you taste my recipes you won’t forget me!!!

“My Cookbooks are different! One is about changing your Lifestyle and the other is about making the best Pizza in the world!”

My Novels depict life! One is about achieving dreams, and the other is about being haunted by one!!!

My first novel is about achieving dreams, finding love, and unfortunately realizing unhappiness! It’s different and not just science fiction, fantasy, thriller, or mystery, but all of that combined in one extraordinary story”

“My newest novel is a psychological mystery that has Agatha Christie overtones, but it takes place in a contemporary setting! This mystery has an interesting twist! It’s different and not just a thriller, ghost story, or normal whodunit mystery. It’s them all!“
