Author M. C Ronen (Maya Cohen-Ronen) is a New Zealand based vegan, feminist, and animal rights activist. She wrote The Liberation Trilogy out of disappointment at being unable to find mainstream books that avoid banal mentions of animal cruelty acts and/or everyday speciesism. Her deliberate intention was to create an exciting, fast-paced, page-turning fiction series that has a clear ethical undertone and message with a potential appeal to a wide range of readers.
Besides writing, Maya is a proud mother of two children, two dogs and one rabbit.
She is a Committee member of The New Zealand Society of Authors - Te Puni Kaituhi O Aotearoa (PEN NZ Inc).
