Maribeth lives in South Carolina with her husband, Bob Bibb, miniature schnauzers, Slugger and Bailey, two sibling cats, Skeeter and Sassy, and four parrots, Jasper (African Grey), Kiwi (Black Cap Conure), Petey (Sun Conure) and Molly (Green Cheeks Conure).
After retiring from the grocery manufacturing industry she decided to try her hand at writing.
SHE WANTED TO TELL HER STORY.
Her first attempt was to write a memoir, but once finished, she felt dissatisfied and still empty. Based on the encouragement of her best girlfriend who recognized Maribeth's writing talents, she began writing a novel with fictional characters. The result was CRACK IN THE WORLD which was published in January 2015 by Indigo Sea Press, Kernersville, NC.
Maribeth's second novel, A VIEW TO THE UNKNOWN, also published by Indigo Sea Press, hit the market in February 2016. The story continues to follow Emily and Sean as they travel through life, learning that there is more to this world than meets the eye.
