About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

Why
do you think your writer chose to write about you?
Mary had no choice. I pestered her until she
gave in and started writing
What
do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
She did blab about my premonitions, but i guess
she had to.
Why
do you think your writer loves to write?
Mary has stories to tell and voices inside her
head. She’s been telling stories for so long I knew she had to tell mine. She listened
to me instead of making up a story.
What
do you wish your writer would write next?
Mary needs to write a book about my baby sister
Esther. She’s a pistol and a strong southern woman.
What
other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about?
Care to tell us why?
Mary has a book about my brother she needs to
send out again or publish it herself. My brother is a great guy who saves lives.
He’s an undercover cop. It’s a good story, too!
Is
there anything you’d like to say to your writer?
Thanks, Mary, for
finding us a publisher. I was leery when you sent my story to a publisher specializing
in erotica. I never thought about my story and Brit’s as erotic fiction, though
we have a VERY erotic relationship!

Author Bio

Mary has been a storyteller for as long as she can remember.
She made up stories for the other children and created the details for their “play
like” or “let’s pretend” games. Sometimes the details were so real
they scared Mary.
Mary was born in Augusta,
Georgia to two eighteen-year
olds. Her daddy, a young Mississippi man, was stationed
at Camp Gordon and fell in love with a young girl
selling flowers.
Mary graduated from Mercer University
where her mama worked in the library. Her mama started working there when Mary’s
daddy went to college to become a preacher and a teacher. Mary taught language arts
for 15 years, perfect for her BA in English. Her M.Ed in Counseling served her well
during her years as a school counselor and as a teacher later.
Now she tutors, teaches writers, and edits. Her inner English
teacher loves the editing part. Mary helped her husband photograph hundreds of weddings.
Her daughter is her cover artist now. Danielle was raised in the photography business.
She doesn’t read Mary’s books. Something about TMI.
