Mary Barr sees storytelling as an art. Each completed story is a piece of life born from words onto the page. A true storyteller and then a writer, she sees the storyline in its entirety before she begins to write. She shares all the twists and turns which continue to whet the reader’s appetite through to the unexpected ending. It’s not about spelling, vocabulary or grammar, although important, these things alone will never make a good story. Instead, Mary Barr’s readers experience the drama, suspense and intrigue of a captivating plot, with characters who often appear larger than life. Maybe we can relate to the good in each of them or the bad. Do we share their character flaws? Have we experienced similar triumphs or do we merely aspire to get a glimpse into their lives? Only in our dreams can we share their dangerous and exciting worlds. Whatever the answers, true fiction is an art and it creates a vivid image that stays with us long after the book is read. Mary Barr’s stories are created solely from her imagination and promise to keep you turning the page, all the way to the rapt conclusion. Mary Barr and her rich imagination currently reside in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.
