As a kid, Mary always preferred books to people. They were much easier to relate to and they couldn’t sense her awkward shyness. She eventually outgrew the shyness, if not the awkwardness. To her own shock, she became a bit of an extrovert. She knows she talks too much, but she can’t seem to control it. She’s given up finding the filter that other people seem to have. Most days, she’d still rather read than deal with people, but she loves lively conversations and people who make her laugh.
Mom to three growing dudes and married to her high school sweetheart, Mary lives on the Gulf Coast of Alabama. She has a couple of fat lapdogs who think they’re guard dogs. (They aren’t.) Being married to a Navy veteran instilled in Mary a love for her country, the ocean, artful swearing and good tattoos. She’s a serial crafter who will try just about any new craft from Origami to knitting. She recently became obsessed with fore-edge fresco, although she’s terrible at it. A romantic at heart, she can find the love story in just about any piece of fiction and believes that almost any story can benefit from some mushy bits
