About Mary Marvella
Mary has been a storyteller for as long as she can remember. She made up stories for the other children and created the details for their “play like” or “let’s pretend” games. Sometimes the details were so real they scared Mary.
Mary was born in Augusta, Georgia to two eighteen-year olds. Her daddy, a young Mississippi man, was stationed at Camp Gordon and fell in love with a young girl selling flowers. Look for details in her blogs.
Mary graduated from Mercer University where her mama worked in the library. Her mama started working there when Mary’s daddy went to college to become a preacher and a teacher. Mary taught language arts for 15 years, perfect for her BA in English. Her M.Ed in Counseling served her well during her years as a school counselor and as a teacher later.
Now she tutors, teaches writers, and edits. Her inner English teacher loves the editing part. Mary helped her husband photograph hundreds of weddings. Her daughter is her cover artist now. Danielle was raised in the photography business. She doesn’t read Mary’s books. Something about TMI.
Mary is a freelance editor and the an editor for Gilded Dragonfly Books. She loves to see dreams become reality for writers.
Mary has published novels and novellas and has one book published by Sizzler Editions.
