Get to know Mary better...

When did you start writing? 1990

When and what and where did you first get published? 1992. "Gift," a short story in Strange Days

I write occasional short blog posts at Goodreads( And I've had an online blog centered on my writing-related mail since 1995, which may be unearthed at
