I enjoy writing inspirational stories about motherhood, couple-hood, and the struggles of daily life.  In today’s world, it’s important to offer an encouraging word whenever possible. 

As a reader, my taste widely varies.  Well-written books that convey the flaws of human nature are somehow comforting.  They certainly make us feel less alone.     

I’ll be sharing some new short stories (some Austenesque) and essays soon and will post links as soon as they’re available on B&N or amazon.com.  

As a musician, the better part of my twenties was spent recording and touring in alternative rock groups (Matthew Sweet, The Wygals, Venus-2, Marti Jones & Don Dixon, Chris Stamey) and later with comedic artists (Rob Bartlett, Barry Mitchell).   

Today, I juggle.  My life consists of raising my son, spending time with my husband, and working for a private investment firm in NYC.  Whenever I have free time, I read….and write.   

Peace, Mary
