About Mary

I am a Toronto actor and writer with an eclectic background: Tried my hand at fashion design, which led me to graphic design where I found a home working primarily in print media. Raised a family, jumped into my childhood dream of acting and managed to book professional jobs in film, TV shows and commercials as well as live theatre productions. When my 18 year-old daughter left to backpack Europe (nine months of no sleep for me!), the idea for my first screenplay, The Rain in Spain, was born. I fell in love with the craft and have been at it ever since, honing my skills with workshops and online courses.

Recently, my screenplay, "Unholy Toledo", which I co-wrote with my brother, Tim House, was selected to be workshopped at The Blacklist TIFF Mini-Lab, making me a Martin Katz Fellow. "Unholy Toledo garnered a nine on The Blacklist and was a quarterfinalist in Scriptapalooza.
