About the Author
The author of "Concealed" and "The Heartstrings Legacy" series of books, Mary "Dynk" McDonald has been writing since childhood. A native Texan, born and raised in the Lone Star state, she resides near the coastal bend of South Texas. Pronounced 'Deenk', as in dinky and small, she is the youngest and smallest of four children whose father gave her the nickname and mother gave her the phonetic spelling. As one of half a million (or more) women with the name of 'Mary McDonald' alive and well in the United States, the name distinguishes her. Her personal statement of her writing career explains her choice of pen names. "Some of us spend our entire lives trying to stand out from the crowd, when all we needed to do was return to our roots. By accepting the embarrassing nickname of my childhood, by starting at the beginning and the dream to write, I believe I am taking the path God intended me to take. To be the person I was intended to be originally." Her writing is unique, reflecting the issues of the modern world grounded in the foundations of God's love and Christ's teachings.
