A.L. Mabry is one of the Executive Editors of My Write Side. As an author, she enjoys writing in all genres and forms, even grocery lists. She is an artist and Wiccan who has an obsessive love of vampires, kilts, and blue butterflies. She is passionate about many topics and her posts are often laced with the snarky sense of humor one acquires from raising five teenagers, all at once. In her downtime, she can be found with her loving husband, Shawn and their children. She maintains her shreds of sanity with yoga, tea, and cats. You can connect with her via Facebook and Twitter or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love to spend my free time on a lake in my kayak, hiking, or relaxing with a great book and a hot cuppa tea.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I actually keep it on my desk. It is a story I wrote when I was 12 as a school project. All the books were "published" and placed in out school library.
The Storms within is a collection of short stories that explore that darker side of the human condition. Each story pulsates with tragedy and a sense of desperate hope that only the suffering could understand. Ms. Mabry weaves personal experiences into fictional webs in a way that draws the reader in for a hug, then punches them in the gut.
