Maryann started writing with a pen and paper those many moons ago before computers, but she rarely used a pen as fine as this one. Mostly,she used stubs of pencils her kids left scattered around the house or ball-point pens with A-One Plumbing on them.

While Maryann now primarily writes by typing on a keyboard, she still loves the look and feel of a fine fountain pen.

Most days Maryann can be found in her office, typing away on said keyboard, but sometimes other commitments take her away from that daily routine, and she has  been known to snarl just a bit when that happens.

EVELYN EVOLVING, the novel Maryann wrote about her mother’s life has flirted with the #1 bestseller list on Amazon several times in two categories since it’s release in May.

This book was three years in the writing and two years in the marketing, and it finally found a home with a small publisher. The story is part biography, part historical novel, and very different from the books Maryann has written before – closer to mainstream novel than genre.

Available as an e-book for KINDLE and in PAPERBACK  and now in AUDIO

Maryann’s humorous memoir, A Dead Tomato Plant and a Paycheck, is available for Kindle readers and is free for Kindle Unlimited. This book is a compilation of weekly columns she wrote for many years for a Dallas suburban newspaper. For a while she was known as the Erma Bombeck of Plano, and she enjoyed airing all the family slightly-distressed laundry. It was a finalist in the 2019 Top Shelf Contest. Now nominated for the 2020 awards at Top Shelf.

A recent note from a reader:

“I have read thousands of books in the past and thought that your books were as good and even better than any other that I have read.”

What a terrific endorsement.

Happy readers make happy writers.
