About Mary Widdicks

Mary Widdicks is a cognitive psychologist turned freelance writer turned novelist. Her articles on parenting have been featured in The Washington Post and Brain, Child Magazine, as well as online publications such as PopSugar and The Huffington Post. She maintains an often humorous, always painfully honest blog dedicated to life with her three small children called Outmanned.

She is also the author of the psychological suspense novel A Mutual Addiction, which you can read more about under Books.

Raised just outside Portland, Oregon, she now lives in Illinois where the tallest thing for miles is the corn. She shares a constantly shrinking house with her husband, three children, two dogs, and a rowdy cat.

Mary Widdicks is represented by Lauren Spieller and the Triada US Literary Agency.
