Hi Mary. I'm reading Veronica right now for my project period for grad school--I'm pursuing my MFA in creative writing from Antioch University in Los Angeles. I LOVE this book. So powerful, and so beautifully written. You are truly gifted, and I can't wait to read more! What a pleasure.
Hi Mary. I've followed your work since Bad Behavior and loved every single book and story. Wonderful to see you on Fictionaut!
