Mary is passionate about writing. Since she was a small girl waiting impatiently for the mailman to deliver the books she ordered from Weekly Reader, she has wanted to be a writer. She loves words. When she reads and writes she listens. Each sentence must sound right - like the notes in a song. To her credit, she has published poetry, short stories, and essays. As a ghost writer she has written a multitude of blurbs, blogs, articles and e-zines for a variety of clients. She has also been a ghost writer on the academic front. Her research and writing skills have led to jobs writing masters and doctoral thesis manuscripts on topics, such as, trends in nursing, theology, and ancient languages. She hopes that her experience as a writer enables her to create articles and stories that are informative and enjoyable.
Mary B likes to write poetry, essays, articles and short stories. Some of her best work is done while sitting in a cafe drinking a cup of coffee or while in the woods listening to the wind and birds. These are places she culls some wonderful imagery for her work. While writing is her passion, it is not her only love.She loves watching nature. Recently she started taking photos of the birds native to her area. They are beautiful! She also loves to cook gourmet food. She can sometimes be seen picking tomatoes, yellow bell peppers and zucchini from her garden for the dishes she prepares.
Mary B is what has been called a "peak learner." She loves to learn. This love of learning extends to many subjects - science, history, languages, religion, crafts, gardening, birding. The list is extensive and she believes infinite. She has worked as a chef, an accountant, an internet researcher, a technical support rep, systems administrator, tutor, and writer. Each experience has added to the treasure trove of images and anecdotes she can use as a writer. The love of her life is language - reading and writing. She began writing as a child and continues to do so. It is difficult to choose a favorite writer. Her library is immense. She seems to favor Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., Tom Robbins, Maya Angelou, Stephen King.. Her grandfather instilled a love of gardening and fixing things. He told her not to depend on anyone to fix something. You must do it yourself. So, when she isn't writing you can find her in the garden watching things grow. She may even be perched nearby with a camera waiting for a bird to join her. When anything from the plumbing to the car to the electricity needs repair, she does it. Some evenings you can find her watching classic movies - she likes Cary Grant - and the History or Science Channel. She is active in her church and uses her gifts to help the members. She organizes carnivals, picnics, and revivals. She also tutors in her spare time. Mary B believes that you can never learn too much and you should never stop learning.
