I write contemporary romance novels and have signed with Soul Mate Publishing for my first novel. When I have a Cover and Release Date I will add a page about it to this site! You can read my introduction to my fellow SMP authors here.
I also write nonfiction as Therese Patrick and am currently completing a memoir about my parents and childhood: My sittin’ mommy and her sweetheart
I am co-founder of Author Marketing 101 with C. Morgan Kennedy. AM101 is FREE marketing advice and actionable tips for authors. We present workshops, do private consultations, and are currently creating a workbook. Our 7 Primary Points can be applied to Artists and Small Business owners who are looking to stand out from the crowd in the internet cloud. Change the words that apply to authors and books to your title and product and have fun online.
On a personal note – I’ve been called a force of nature, Mary Sunshine, an unusual person, totally Yin with no Yang, and this means I laugh lots, whine occasionally and am always trying to figure out “the meaning of life.”
My husband Ed and I have four daughters, two grandsons, and have moved seven times. My professional life transitioned with each birth and move from a bookkeeper to office manager, tech writer and recently, business consultant. There were a few years of working in home health care, geriatrics and hospice. With my youngest daughter now in college, I have returned as well and am working toward my AAOT in Arts & Letters.
Writing and reading are a main focus in my life but I also enjoy gardening, cooking, kayaking and cycling. Ed and our daughters have brought country living, dogs, a horse, bunny, cats and mole-dirt-mountains into my daily life. Ed’s also a private pilot and introduced me to a variety of airplanes, motorcycles and power watercraft. After traveling with him for over a year I’ve mastered the details of being a savvy traveler.
Life is an adventure, I’ve chosen to take that journey.
