About Mary

I found my true calling when I first moved to coastal South Carolina.

I was already a successful author at the time with six books published – but I found myself captivated by the beauty and fragility of my new home. My experiences living in the midst of a habitat that was quickly changing gave me a strong and important focus for my books and I began to write environmental fiction. Since then, I have explored the problems of endangered sea turtles, raptors and the indigenous grass and endangered ecosystem through my work.

I am an active conservationist. I’m a dedicated member of the Isle of Palms/Sullivan's Island Turtle Team, a volunteer at the South Carolina Centre for Birds of Prey, and I serve on the Board of the South Carolina Aquarium. A source of pride for me is the fact that thousands of dollars have been raised to support environmental causes, specifically through my books.

I strive to create richly textured stories that delve into the complexities of the human psyche and the parallels between the land and life.

I currently live with my family on a barrier island off South Carolina.
