Mary Ann Moody

Biography

As the hipsters say, "I like to let my freak flag fly".

I was born in a small town and raised in an even smaller town. My childhood and my family are amazing. I had the best life growing up because I lived in the country with only my imagination, and my wonderful parents and brothers to keep me occupied. Writing is my passion and I can't see myself happy in this life without it.

Aside from writing I love to be with my family, read, play video games, cook, and watch terrible B Grade Horror movies. I do not discriminate against books, I will read anything given to me no matter what it is. My movie collection isn't as extensive as my books, but I do love movies. Especially horror movies. I spend my days with my husband and children, and completing Book Three of The Delengrad Trilogy.

The biggest love of my life is my family and friends who are the true inspiration behind my stories.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
No. I started writing stories as soon as I grasped the concept of creating them. Basically, I was writing in elementary school while the teacher was teaching.
What is your writing process?
I start with an idea that grabs me and makes me want to write. My process starts with one scene of the book, for 'Regina' it was the ending. I knew exactly how I wanted the book to end, so I wrote it first. Then I wrote other major scenes as I continued to work on the events leading up to the end. In order to really understand my characters, I wrote backgrounds on most of them, and played music that mirrored their personality as I wrote their scenes. Music has a large influence on my writing and usually helps me complete a scene if I'm stuck. It took many edits, and lots of cuts to my work to finally make it perfect. Writing a novel is a long and painful process that I thoroughly enjoyed.
