Small Steps Make the Journey Possible

It has been a while since I paid a visit to here, I think life has been a little upside down for us all. But I feel an update is required and so here I am! By taking small steps I am progressing in my writing life, plus it cancels out the terrifying feeling of being overwhelmed by all we must do.

I finished my Master’s in the University of Limerick and submitted my thesis at the end of August. Where did that year go? I loved every moment of it and would say to anyone of thinking of applying to do so.

My rights reverted back to me for my novels and so I am bringing them out again and they will be available in both formats, eBook and paperback. I am so thrilled about that. I want to thank Tirgearr Publishing for being a supportive and friendly publisher to work with. I am working on two other novels at present. Plus I aim to submit an erotic romance novella soon also. I have submitted some short stories and memory articles to magazines which I am waiting on word of their acceptance or rejection, so fingers crossed lovely people.

In the mean time the two flash fiction stories I share with you (links below) were published and I was interviewed for a local radio station in the US by Tirgearr author, Becky Flade, something I really enjoyed.

This following story is particularly cute, The Orange Flowerpot. I was honoured to be the first author to write for their new children stories section.

I was invited to write a flash of 500 words on the theme, The Summer of 2020. This was published on Ted Atoka’s, FaceBook page Tell Me A Story.

Mary T Bradford has been writing mainly short stories for several years now and has enjoyed success with her fiction in magazines, newspapers, and anthologies both in Ireland and abroad, in Germany, India, and the US. her stories have been placed and both short/long listed in various competitions. It was because of this success, Mary took the plunge and self-published her first collection of stories titled, A Baker’s Dozen (2012). She decided to tackle a novel when one of her stories kept getting longer and the word count continued to climb and so ended up with her first published novel, My Husband's Sin. The follow up to this, Don't Call Me Mum, is available now too. Mary continues to write novels and short stories. Her books can be found on Amazon. She has dabbled too in writing plays and has seen her work shortlisted and performed. In 2019, Mary attended the University of Limerick and studied for a MA in Creative Writing. In August 2020, she submitted her thesis for evaluation. When taking a break from writing and reading Mary loves to crochet or cross-stitch. Living in County Cork, Ireland, she is married and is a mother of four children. Having overcome open heart surgery in 2008, Mary made the decision to dedicate more time to her writing. Her children were almost raised by then and were starting to spread their wings. Family is important to her and her writing reflects the ups and downs of life, relationships, and all that people go through daily.
