More About the Author

Mary Anne Benedetto was raised in Southern California, moved to the Albany, New York area in her late teens, and then south with her charming husband, Fred, to Murrells Inlet, South Carolina in 2007. Her first novel, Eyelash, was borne as she began writing while she sat on the beach with her girlfriends in Cape May, New Jersey during an annual July "Girls Only Week" in Cape May--a laughter filled vacation that they have enjoyed for almost two decades. Never Say Perfect is her second novel, and she has published 7 Easy Steps to Memoir Writing: Build a Priceless Legacy One Story at a Time! to help people easily capture their life stories and From Italy with Love & Limoncello, which is a travel memoir about four friends visiting Italy on an unguided tour. Write Your Pet's Life Story in 7 Easy Steps! guides pet lovers through the process of capturing the stories of those "other family members." Dead Flowers for Hollywood is an astonishingly true story by Amanda Sue Rose, as told to Mary Anne Benedetto. Four husbands = four disasters, and Amanda's story was revealed to help others think twice and look for red flags before becoming emotionally, financially and legally entangled via matrimony.

As the owner of A Writer's Presence, LLC, she is a Certified Lifewriting Instructor, affiliated with The Memoir Network. In addition to working on new writing projects, Mary Anne teaches workshops to help people write their life and family stories, capture the essence of their Christian spiritual paths, and learn about navigating the publishing highways. She thrives on speaking to community groups about the importance of preserving our stories to share with future generations, having been deeply touched by a trip to Hawaii where she toured Pearl Harbor and recalled that her father, Ralph Greene, had been stationed there in the Army on December 7, 1941. She knew virtually nothing about his experiences of that day--because she had never taken the time to ask. She is passionate about influencing others to write their own stories and capture the written life experiences of loved ones before it is no longer possible.

Mary Anne is a wife, mom, and grandmother of three, great-grandmother of one, who loves the challenge of creating new writing workshops and projects because they will ultimately touch the lives of people whom she will never know.

Format: Paperback
Mary Anne Benedetto's delighful debut novel "EYELASH" is the ideal accompaniment to a leisurely afternoon at the beach. When empty-nesters Laina and Dan decide to trade their big city lifestyle for a quieter life in a charming seaside community, they have no idea what's in store. The daily challenges and annoyances of their new inkeeping business ultimately escalate into a dangerously suspenseful situation that tests the solidity of their marriage. Laced with mystery, humor, and intrigue this faith-affirming story of midlife transitions is both entertaining and inspiring. Can't wait for the sequel!

When a dymamic Manhattan couple with successful careers decide to enjoy the simpler life--managing a bed and breakfast--it is not what they expected. Mary Anne Benedetto skillfully crafts a fascinating novel with surprises, mystery and subtle humor. Her touch is light but her insight is piercing as intrigues multiply from Cape May to Las Vegas. This is for any reader who enjoys tales of a challenging family drama. I was mesmerized to the final page!

I have to admit that I struggled with this book a little. It has a somewhat slow beginning, but when a book makes me forget that I'm reading and gets me inside the action feeling all sorts of emotions, you can't deny that it is a good book!

This is the story of a couple of professionals who decide to leave the hustle and bustle of New York City to open a bed and breakfast near the city. The first issue is that they don't share the excitement about the decision. It's the husband, Dan, who being sick with his corporate job who wants out and into the entrepreneurship live. On the other hand, his wife Laina, is very happy with her career and the prospect of growth, but in an unexpected turn of events those prospects are cut off and in a swift decision she agrees to move to Cape May to open up the B&B.

And you would think that the business went bad or something and that's the issue. No. Dan, who was the one who wanted the B&B decides to be the entertainment director ( just to titled him something) and leave all the hard work to his wife. I admit that for the large part of the book I was super angry with Dan and wanted to see him suffer greatly. The author's heart is better than mine and she did put him through some hurdles, but I wanted a little bit more.hahaha!

The kicker to this story is that Laina has a cousin, Tia. Who decides to invite her to Las Vegas so that she can catch a break from the life at the B&B. Laina accepts not only because she needs the time away, but because her inconsiderate husband needs to experience how much she does and how much of him is required to run the B&B.

All those who know about my reviews know that I hate to spoil the fun, but let me just say this; I literally read the last two chapters with my mouth open.

This is a great book to read by a poolside or the beach, when you want some lighthearted reading. Good job Mary Anne Benedetto. I look forward to reading more from this author.

This book held my interest and was very good. I would have liked a bit more after the resolution to see how Dan helped Laine more with the running of the inn.

I was really looking forward to reading this book and quit after a few pages. Why? Excessive description. Here's an example: "Taking a second bite of the delicious apple, Laina sat down at her computer desk that was located in the excessively large bedroom, a corner of which she and Dan had designated as a functional home office." This probably had (has with extensive editing) potential as a good story, but slogging through all description was not worth it.

The first thing that bothered me was the 'assumption' that the biker couple, who weren't within the main character's life experience window (very small and narrow window, at that) were responsible for the shoplifting in town.

Most of the plot-lines were predictable - almost to an embarrassing extent. I finished it, but it definitely wasn't one of my favorite reads.

The entire Las Vegas scenario was just stupid.

Even with this being a free Kindle download, I was still incredibly disappointed with this book. The story line was incredibly slow and underwhelming. The dialogue was some of the worst I have read in years...long, boring monologues that rarely happen in real life conversations, especially between spouses. I am an avid reader and it has been many years since I have not been able to finish a book...until now.

Eyelash was a very well written story about a couple who make a major change in their lives and end up experiencing lots of issues in that process. Overall, it was very entertaining and kept your interest all the way through by taking various twist and turns. It shows what it can be like to experience changes and what it is really like to walk in someone else's shoes for a while.
