Mary Pearson

Biography

Mary Pearson grew up in an enormous Catholic family with fifteen siblings. Now, she has five daughters of her own, but no boys - at least as far as she knows (wink wink). She cantors for her church and helps out with charitable functions. She's a big fan of crazy vampire romance books, well made cookies, and Jesus (not in that particular order). She decorates cakes, and once got angry and threw a wedding cake at her sister because she had enquired when it would be ready. Her sister walked out covered in frosting and told the customer that it would be a bit longer than expected, She makes up her own language with her kids, using words like cheesewunks and scrullums. She once accidently tanned her upper lip by sitting out in the sun at a strange angle and ended up looking kind of swarthy for a while, her long hair and her tan moustache lip. She is one of the two stars of Buying Tyme - a true story about her and her mother buying a rundown bakery and trying to learn to make a living with it. That story just got translated for the Chinese by some folks in Hong Kong. You can find that story, written by a positively brilliant author, here on Smashwords for free. Mary also won a bunch of academic awards and crap and graduated from the University of Minnesota with honors. She's written lots of books and plans to put some of them here for you guys, her new best friends, to cherish and enjoy, and to run with your Nooks and Kindles out into your city to show the stories to anyone you're physically strong enough to hold down and force to read them.

    Are you kidding me...?! Less than $3.00 for one of the best Harry Potter-like novels I have ever read. I can't wait for the sequels. A must read for all J T Pearson fans.
