Mary was born in Macon, Georgia and calls herself a Georgia Peach. She lives in Northern California with her two pups, twelve-year-old Heidi, an escape artist and her apprentice an eight-month-old Terrier. They keep Mary busy when she’s not at the computer writing her stories.

She reads History, Crime, Mysteries, Autobiographies. She has traveled to England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Canada and Mexico as well as traveling the U.S.A. in an RV for ten years.

These experiences have shaped her into the writer she is today. She loves it when people say to her, ‘Oh you’re a writer, what do you write?” With a twinkle in her eye, she answers, “I write crime.”
