About Mary

There is not really a lot to say. I have several passions: my family, my writing, my photography. The writing extends to more than 'just writing', and to more than just 'me' -- I write under several names, for different reasons. The genres spread from comedy to literary, with some mystery, suspense, and war stories thrown into the mix. The form? It is definitely more than 'just novels'. I play with short stories, poetry, blogs, plays, screenplays, and just about anything else I can put my hand, or fingers, to in an attempt to entertain, vent, share, encourage or cause the reader to consider the possibility. The work? I write, but also mentor, edit, and publish. In a business that has many different hats and purposes, I have yet to find one that doesn't make me smile. Every aspect of it is rewarding, inspiring, fulfilling. If a word of mine or a thought I share brings a smile to your face, for even a moment, my work is done.
