She is the author of High above the Hippodrome, Researching Issues, Writing Whizardry, Research to Write, Researching Events, Researching People, Write to be Read, and the award-winning Tasso of Tarpon Springs, and Panther Girl.
Maity is a skilled teacher-trainer, and she presents workshops at schools and libraries, professional conferences, and writers institutes.
