A Canadian girl born and raised in a large city, Mary Sullivan loves to write about small towns, perhaps because of the countless hours spent as a child listening to her mother’s fascinating stories about her rural childhood. Since her days working in commercial darkrooms, Mary has gravitated toward careers that involve creativity. After a bit of a rural hiatus, Mary is back living in a large city again and loving it! Her interests are simple: exploring the city, cooking, entertaining, reading and taking long walks on nature trails. And puzzles! She can’t get enough of cryptic crosswords! She loves to hear from readers and can be reached through her website, www.marysullivanbooks.com, where readers can also sign up for her newsletter.
