About Me

Old. Grumpy. The human equivalent of wallpaper. Loves to laugh. Loves to cook. Enjoys a fine adult beverage accompanied by excellent company. Wishes she could sing. Or dance. At least better than she does. Has very few friends, but loves them dearly. Old. Grumpy. Short-term memory issues.

Why do you write?

Coal. Kerosene. The low spark of high-heeled boys.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Mark Twain, C.S. Lewis, Sharon Kay Penman, David Sedaris. Books? Damned near all of them. I am an Information Goddess/Librarian after all.

Hey, Mary! Thanks for reading and commenting on my eBay silliness.

Thank you, Mary, for your comment and fave on my story, "How We Made Gravity about Us." I look forward to reading your work.

To my favorite Capps (make sure Mark knows this): Thank you for the wonderful comment and fave of Little Grey Elephant. It means a lot to me. Thank you.

Mary, don't you know that thirty years equals ten decades? Duh...
Thanks for pointing that out to me. I'm silly.

Hi, Mary. Thank you for stopping by and commenting on "The Number 4." Hope you're doing well.

Hello Mary! If Fictionaut were a summer camp Fictionaughties would be the cabin I'd long to join, but @geek would be the one where I'd be most at home. Thank you for the feedback! Do you tweet?

Thank you for reading and fav-ing "1991!" I just read (your) "Horny" all the way through, then was like, "Who the hell wrote this, this kicks seventeen kinds of ass!" POW! Mary!
