Meet Mary Beth Magee

I'm a writer, blogger, speaker, teacher, reader, dreamer, gardener, crafter and like Rudyard Kipling's Elephant's Child, I am filled with "'satiable curiosity." I love the innocence of kids, the affection of animals and the joy of God's creation. 

As a partner in The Everyman Puppet Theatre, I get to narrate puppet shows and play with puppets created by the amazing Laura Anne Ewald.

As a cohost of "Two Country Gals Talk Books," I get to chat with delightful fellow author Marisa Fife and an array of authors in multiple genres.


Books, books and more books!

Let's get acquainted:
