Bio headshot 2.png

Former cognitive psychologist turned suspense writer, Mary is the author of A Mutual Addiction (January 2019) and Insomnia. She is a firm believer in strong, twisted female characters and unhappy endings. Her internet search history is not for the faint of heart.

As a freelance writer and humorist, Mary’s essays have been featured on The Washington Post, Brain, Child Magazine, and Scary Mommy. She has also appeared on a Wisconsin Public Radio morning show discussing the psychology of parenting. Mary does not perform well at 5:30am.

Raised near Portland, Oregon, Mary now lives in central Illinois where the tallest thing for miles is corn. She shares a perpetually shrinking house with her three kids, two dogs, and two cats…and can usually be found writing under at least one of them at all times.
