About me (Mary Woodbury, pen Clara Hume)

I’m also a writer and am the author of Back to the Garden (Moon Willow Press, 2014), Bird Song: A Novella (Dragonfly Pub, 2020), and Finn’s Tree Alphabet (Dragonfly Pub, 2021). Upcoming is the sequel to Back to the Garden, The Stolen Child (2022). I’m also a contributing author to Wild Tales from the River (Stormbird Press, 2018). I’m part of the core writer team at Artists and Climate Change and have guest-posted at Impakter, Chicago Review of Books, Ecology Action Centre’s Magazine, ClimateCultures.net, Free Word Centre, SFFWorld, and Fjord’s Review.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first long story I ever wrote was about a teenager who visited relatives at a ranch in the southwestern US. She met a guy named Levon (yeah, I really liked Elton John, even then), who was a Native American and being accused of some trouble on the ranch. She befriends him. Of course, he's not the bad guy all along. I wish I had kept that story.
Describe your desk
My desk is free of junk. I do have two big monitors, but other than that, my desk is a slab of pine and the only thing on it really is a wooden coaster, where I'll have a water glass.
