About Mary

My southern family have always enjoyed tall tales and spinning a good yarn. Early on, I realised that stories had tremendous power to inspire strong responses such as fear, laughter, love and even sorrow. It didn’t matter if the tale was found in the pages of a book, spoken in hushed tones around a Girl Scout campfire, or spouted at an old fashioned southern family reunion. This appreciation of stories motivated me to earn an English degree from Virginia’s Hollins University.

After a decade of working in marketing and sales, I became convinced I could write and sell one of the many stories buzzing around my brain. Fingers crossed, I left the marketing profession and devoted all my spare time to writing a novel. Soon after, I sold my first manuscript to Harlequin Historicals.

I currently reside in Virginia where I enjoy yoga, cooking, hiking and the occasional triathlon.
