I'm a brilliant but ditsy dame from a little town in New Mexico. I speak a smattering of several languages and can get by in French; I have terrific friends on 5 continents. I love reading history, lightweight philosophy, (not enough) Real Literature, fey and charming mystery tales, and sometimes theology. I've lived on the edge of two different war zones and learned SO much from SO many people. I work as a nurse and play 'sub-professional' oboe. I write, ponder, wonder, and admire. Mom, Franciscan, Friend. Those are my favorite labels.
Mary is working on a masters degree in education, and presently holds a bachelor's degree of science in nursing with qualification in public health and hospice. She's also formally studied anthropology, Bible, and Islam. She's published 2 novels and is working on a third book.
