Pear Tree June 2022

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, Pear Tree proprietor

“I think everybody’s weird. We should all celebrate our individuality and not be embarrassed or ashamed of it.” ― Johnny Depp

Through a massive amount of meditation, I was led to veganism last summer. It’s almost a year since I shunned all animal products. Fish was the very last to go, but after seeing a sweet octopus at a sea aquarium, I just couldn’t do fish anymore.

While many vegans judge others who still consume animal products, I try not to. This is my personal journey and path. Just like writing is my path.

We are all unique individuals and we all strive to be loved and accepted. However, that’s not always the case. Some don’t understand us, therefore cannot accept us. Nevertheless, we should all continue doing what we set out to do. Continue following your dreams and celebrating your differentness!

NOTE: At this time, Pear Tree is booked to the max! To be put on the “waiting list” for book editing contact me at: maryannechristiano@gmail.com … Note, this is for complete manuscripts only. Pear Tree is no longer accepting ghost writing clients.

I may be available for Over 50 modeling paid gigs and Event Help.

Pear Tree November 2021

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, Proprietor

“When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.” — Willie Nelson

Counting your blessings is a practice that should be done daily. I do this every morning, when I write in my journal. There is always something to be grateful for, even as we age and make changes according to what is happening around us. Count your blessings each morning, and you’ll be fascinated by the magic that happens when you do so. Life is always full of surprises. Some not so good, but others miraculous! Keep your eyes open for the wonderment.

As we enter another month, there are more changes to Pear Tree. For the time being, I’m putting a hold on book editing, ghost writing, and journalism. I’m concentrating on more things that get me away from the computer. Moving forward, I am available for public speaking engagements, small acting roles in commercials and indie films, and over 50 modeling.

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

NOTE: I am no longer taking on new clients for ghost writing/book editing/journalism. Speaking events and over 50 modeling only,
