M. E. Dawson


Like Nanette says, "It's complicated."

Mary E. Dawson's life has been a series of right angle turns, each leading to new adventures and distant horizons never before contemplated. A former professional photographer, editor for NASA, community activist, elected official, and attorney, Mary searched from New Orleans, to Seattle, to Houston, and Miami, before she found the place she calls home - a small remnant of Florida's last frontier, which she shares with friends, family, and a black-and-tan hound that wandered in out of the Allapattah Flats one sunny afternoon. And Life has imparted lessons at every turn, but most notably the lessons Joe ultimately learns:

"Never underestimate the power and strength of women, and it's how and who you love that counts, but when it comes to that, "Your heart and your body don't play by anyone's rules. They love who they love and want who they want, and there's nothing you can do about it."

"Code Name Nanette" is Mary's thank-you gift to fate for the education, and "The River Way Home" is Mary's gift to the community she loves. Enjoy!!
