Mary L. Tabor is the author of The Woman Who Never Cooked, which won Mid-List Press’s First Series Award and was published when she was 60.
Her short stories have won numerous literary awards. Her experience spans the worlds of journalism, business, education, fiction and memoir writing. She was a high school English teacher who joined the business world, leaving her corporate job when she was 50 to earn an MFA degree.
She teaches at George Washington University, works with less-privileged populations at the D.C. library on how to get started writing, and is a Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow. She lives in the Penn Quarter in downtown D.C.
When Mary L. Tabor’s husband of 21 years announced, “I need to live alone,” she cratered and turned to the only comfort she had left: her writing. What resulted was (Re) Making Love: a sex after sixty story, a fresh, witty, funny and brutally honest memoir of everything she felt and did during her long journey back to happiness.
