Mary Marvella has been a storyteller for as long as she can remember. She made up the "Let's Pretend" situations for the neighborhood kids. The arrival of the book mobile was as exciting as hearing the music of the ice cream truck, more, since she could check out books but seldom had the money for the ice cream. Her parents preferred letting her walk to the corner store for less money. She still pinches pennies.
When Mary's daughter was small, story time often meant Mama made up stories. Now retired from teaching the classic works of the masters, Mary writes her own stories and reads modern novels.
Georgia raised, she writes stories with a Southern flair.
