Mary is a native of Vancouver B. C., and lived in the provincial capital of Victoria and then abroad before resettling in the Lower Mainland. The evocative landscapes of the area provide constant inspiration for her writing. Her poems, stories and non-fiction have appeared a wide variety of publications, and her work has won or placed in a number of competitions in Canada and the U. S., as well as receiving critical acclaim.
Mary's credits include the Sword and Sorceress, Northern Frights and Tesseracts anthology series, and her story, "Killing Daniel," was recently published in the Paranormal Fiction issue of the Canadian anthology Snafu. Her dark fiction piece, "The Language of Crows," which came out previously on the World Fantasy Convention 2001 CD ROM and Pseudopod, will be included in the upcoming Tesseracts Thirteen anthology, and three of her poems have been accepted for a speculative issue of Room magazine. She has placed on the preliminary ballot of the Nebula and Bram Stoker awards (poetry collection), and on the final ballot of the Aurora Awards.
