I write web content, poetry and stories. If you would like to read a couple of my childhood memories stories, please visit my Treasures To Me blog. I enjoy writing these kind of stories. They are my favorite things to write about and I have had many of them published in anthologies, such as Chocolate for Women and Guideposts.
If you decide to visit the Chocolate for Women website, be sure to check out the Story Excerpts to read a sampling of what the Chocolate for Women series was all about. Kay Allenbaugh compiled this series and did a marvelous job. You can see my bio there under Contributors.
I sold many of my family stories to Guideposts and they appeared in the series, Listening to the Animals and Comfort from Beyond. The books are full of great inspirational stories that will make your spirits soar. Guideposts is a great source of inspirational reading material. I have also had stories published in Angels on Earth Magazine.
Ideal contacted me one day by email and asked if they could publish a blurb from one of my stories in The Blessings of a Grandfather's Love. I was delighted. It's not often that a publisher contacts a writer to ask to use their writing.
After 911, I was very honored to have a story published in 911: The Day America Cried. This is a Collection of Poems, Letters and Stories of an American Tragedy, as stated on the book's cover. It was compiled by Victoria Walker and published by Obediah Press. All proceeds from this book were donated to the Todd M. Beamer Foundation.
Articles that I've had published online are many. I have written for Life in Italy, At the Fence, Windowbox, Suite101, as well as many others. My favorite is eCountryLifestyle. I am going to write a review on this website soon. If you enjoy a country lifestyle, this website is one that you will enjoy visiting. There is so much to do there.
I hope you will pick up some of the print publications that I have written for. They are all inspirational and you will enjoy reading the stories that are included in these anthologies. Until my next post, be safe. ~Mary~
