Pear Tree – August 2021

 “A life without love is like a year without summer.” —Swedish Proverb

Hey Gang!

How has your summer been? I’m totally loving it, especially now that places are re-open for live music shows.

And guess what? It looks like Pear Tree is back in full swing! I have some live programs booked! Check them out below. And in the meantime, if you need anything, check out the “What Can I Do For You?” section, as I’ve re-added some old stuff! After a brief break, I’m ghost writing again. AND, for the first time since 2009, Pear Tree is offering personal assistance!


Shoot me an email at: maryannechristiano@gmail.com

I’m available for ghost writing and memoir writing, blogging, editing, essays, and Facebook updates. And public speaking, as well as working events tables at trade shows such as Chiller and Comic Con. AND, back from what I did in 2009 — I’ve re-added “personal assistance.”

Rates are reasonable, and the first hour phone (or in-person) consultation is free to potential new clients. Every client who uses Pear Tree services will be featured in the newsletter (unless for whatever reason they don’t want to be in the newsletter, as privacy is respected).


Currently working on my next book. Shh! It’s a secret!

Publications I’m currently writing for: Dental Products Shopper, Trenton Journal, and Nutfield Publishing.
