Wyoming Arts Council


Hello! I'm Mary!

I’ve written under a few pen names for various reasons. The byline may change, but the writing doesn’t. I write stories that resonate with readers because of my emotional honesty. I don’t shy away from tough topics or conversations, which show themselves in my work and through my character development.

I work in education for the great state of Wyoming. And, I’m also fortunate to teach fiction writing courses at our local community college. Like my dad, I believe anyone can write and sometimes they just need a little inspiration and direction. So, I’m the lucky one who gets to work with writers on their path toward publication.

I’m mom to four pretty amazing kids. My identical twin boys are hardworking, fun-loving young adults, my only daughter is a strong, independent young woman, who is away at college, and my youngest son, who's about to start high school, keeps me young and on the go.

Life is beautiful, messy, and unpredictable. Writing about life and all it’s variations gives me great joy and is my perfect escape. I hope reading is your perfect escape.

Write. Edit. Repeat. Stories Matter.
