Cheri Blossum’s breakthrough novel -  

Secrets & Seduction


About Maura Stone

Caught like a deer in headlights

Recipient of two national book awards, Maura Stone comes from a leading borscht belt entertainment family known as Catskill Royalty. No stranger to comedy as she was trained in the tradition of intellectual humor (both high and lowbrow), Maura pursued a different career path, commercial banking. Which gave rise to shock from colleagues when her first novel, Five-Star FLEECING, received rave reviews and won a national book award in 2011 for comedy. Although fictional in scope, the stories in the book are based upon true tales from the crypt of incidents formerly known to those involved in the high-end hospitality industry. 

Breaking new ground with her unconventional sense of humor, Maura's latest comedy is eDating the Old School Way, published by HOPress in October 2014. In the role of the Bubbameistah, she satirizes the online dating arena and advice books/blogs while dispensing sage pearls of wisdom. Some say it's hilarious beyond belief. A must read for anyone who ventures online to seek a potential romance or whatnot.

Secrets & Seduction by Cheri Blossum, a parody of 50 Shades, won the 2015 National Indie Excellence Award for Erotica. Just goes to show that there is an appetite for a porn bondage comedy!

To date, Maura has published several mini ebooks, some of which have won awards, and her recent contributions to Her blog, is the top comedy blog on the planet, winning awards and acclaim.

Stay tuned for upcoming news!
