Mary is an offspring of the counter-culture mind-blown hippie movement that sprung up north of the Bay Area after the sixties. She roamed through the landscape with all of the other half-feral, half-naked, half-educated children running wild in the hills and forests of Northern California, like Titania's fairies roamed through the Grecian wood or Wendy's lost boys roamed through Neverland, dancing through buttercups, oak leaves, and wild strawberries.
She continued to roam as she grew older, through Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, finally landing in San Francisco where she currently resides with three pesky roommates and two mellow cats, no wait switch that. Armed with a BS in biology from the University of California San Diego, she was a veterinarian’s assistant and then a field biologist and then a zookeeper at the San Francisco Zoo. But her passion for books drew her to writing. She graduated from Mills College, Oakland with a MFA in Creative Writing and English. She puts her second degree to use as Managing Editor of Reputation Books and Literary Agent at Kimberley Cameron & Associates.
She has taken her love of adventure & biology and turned it to the pen to write about all the strange, fabulous, and unexpected in this world.

This is the kind of innovative writing that we need to blow out the rigid, congealed sump pumps of the secure, and placid assumptions about our common story book heritage. Anyone who cares to deny the fact that the fairy tales of childhood have a deep subconscious influence upon our childhood thinking, and dealings with the daily world should read Bruno Bettelheim's "The Uses of Enchantment". "Wolfman" is an extrapolation of the much told story, putting events into a much needed adult context. A dark variation of Sondheim's "Into the Woods". We writers who deal in myth and fable and other bumps in the night can only stand and applaud this brave, innovative work. TM

This was actually fairly good and an interesting twist to the old Red Riding Hood story.
Writing was a bit confusing, however and it felt rushed. Some important details were only hinted at but not quite explained.
But still a fairly good story.
