Mary has been a storyteller for as long as she can remember. She made up stories for the other children and created the details for their “let’s pretend” games. Sometimes the details were so real they scared the other children away.
Mary was born in Augusta, Georgia to two eighteen-year-olds. Her daddy, a young Mississippi man, was stationed at Camp Gordon and fell in love with a young girl selling flowers. The story of this particular romance is told further in Mary’s blogs.
Mary graduated from Mercer University where her mama worked in the library. Mary taught language arts for 15 years, perfect for her BA in English. Her M.Ed in Counseling served her well during her years as a school counselor, and later as a teacher. Now she tutors, teaches writers, and edits—and has helped her husband photograph hundreds of weddings.
Mary likes to pluck at her readers’ heartstrings!
