Who made this Journal, anyway?

The Birthday Journal was created and designed by moi, Maria Saracen, with the “help” of Finn the cat (pictured hard at work, on right). 

I’m a writer, graphic designer and NE Emmy-nominated television producer. As a child, I was often scolded for reading too much, my record being 12 Nancy Drew books in one week! I was raised in South Africa, on a beautiful game reserve, and decided that the only way to stay out of trouble was to read in trees. 

These days, when I’m not making documentaries or designing journals, I love reading stories with my little boy (sadly, not in trees). Watch this space because we’re publishing a book we’re writing together soon. (And, no…it’s not about Finndini the Amazing Escape Artist, but that one should be in the works, too! 😉
