Maria Haskins

Writer & Translator

About me


So who am I, anyway?

My name is Maria Haskins. I’m a mom, wife, writer, Swedish-Canadian, and translator. I was born and raised in Sweden, but moved to Canada in the early 1990s. Right now, I’m located just outside Vancouver with two kids, a husband, and a very large black dog.

I debuted as a writer in Sweden. My first book, a collection of poetry, was published in 1989. It took me a long time to become comfortable with the idea of writing and publishing my work in English, but in 2015 I took the leap and self-published ODIN’S EYE, a collection of science fiction short stories; and CUTS & COLLECTED POEMS 1989-2015, a collection of poetry.

These days, I mainly write a variety of speculative fiction: science fiction, fantasy, sometimes a touch of horror.
