About Mary


Since January 2008, I’ve written fifteen manuscripts and finaled in over twenty contests including a 2010 Golden Heart for Contemporary Series Romance for LAURA TAKES A LOVER and a 2012 Golden Heart for Romantic Suspense for CHEMICAL ATTRACTION and a 2015 Golden Heart for Contemporary Series Romance for A NIGHT AT THE  ROSEMONT. 

I’ve been a multimedia account executive for USA Today and The Oregonian newspaper since 2000. 

With a Business degree in Marketing from Oregon State University and a minor in Apparel, Interiors and Merchandising, I write about smart, business savvy heroines, who find themselves caught between traditional roles and their own independent spirit.
