Mary Ann Peden-Coviello

Biography

I'm a writer, a wife, a mother (both of natural and unofficially adopted sons) in no particular order.

I have a preference for a lot of British spelling. Shoot me.

My humour is a little dry, a little caustic, a little bit on the punny side of the street.

I'm a Christian but don't believe in battering people over the head with my religion. Just don't batter me with yours and we'll be fine.

My politics are a little to the left of centre.

Smashwords book reviews by Mary Ann Peden-Coviello

  • Pillow Talk on June 16, 2011

    This is a twisted little tale. A dystopian futuristic situation and a flawed, damaged narrator leave the reader gasping in the last few sentences. The writer, using a pen-name here, is masterful in leaving clues all throughout so I said, "Of course!" when I came to the end. I didn't feel cheated or tricked. The ending was still a stunner, but made perfect sense.
  • White Christmas Pansies on Dec. 04, 2011

    This is a tender, well-written love story. It doesn't start out as much of a love story as the narrator's opening line is along the lines of "After Christmas, I'm going to leave my husband." There is a lot of heart, a lot of insight into human nature and husband and wife dynamics. It's a short story, quick to read. It's apt to linger in your heart long after you finish it. I enjoyed it very much indeed.
