Celebrations on a Grey November Day

It has been a good week for my writing and I want to celebrate it with you all. Two simple things happened, firstly, a story of mine was published in the iconic Irish magazine, Ireland’s Own which is enjoyed around the world. This really lifted my spirits as politics dominated the news and life of everyone living – yes, the American presidential election took place. I also had a memory piece in this magazine last month, The Grandfather I Can’t Recall, so I feel very honoured to be included again.

Secondly, my novel, Don’t Call Me Mum is available now to all you wonderful loyal readers who have been waiting for it in paperback, well now it is here! I promise too that the third and final novel in Lacey Taylor’s story is waiting to be published in Spring 2021. All novels can be read as stand alone stories too.

Family is important to Mary and her writing reflects the ups and downs of it all, and what people go through daily. She has been writing short stories for several years and enjoys success with her fiction in magazines, newspapers, and anthologies both in Ireland and abroad, namely Germany, India, and the US. Her stories have been 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 plans to bring out a new collection in 2021. When one of her stories kept growing she ended up with her first published novel, My Husband's Sin. The follow up to this, Don't Call Me Mum, is available also. Both are available in paperback and eBook format on Amazon. Mary continues to write novels and short stories. 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.
