Mary Tweedy was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut. She was educated in Art History, Classical Archaeology, Classical Languages and Anthropology at Pomona College and Indiana University. She spent a year studying in Paris. After completing her undergraduate education, she attended Archaeological Field School at Native American sites in southern Illinois and conceived a great respect and love for Native American cultures, which lead to the writing of her first novel, CAPTIVE DAUGHTER, ENEMY WIFE. This is an adventure novel that takes place in the 17th century, taking a young Neutral woman through the trauma of capture by the Five Nations and forcible adoption into the Onondaga tribe.
She recently completed her second novel, JANE AND YOU, a contemporary novel in the Magic Realism genre. This explores, with some humor, the aftermath of personal loss, grief, healing and redemption through the eyes of a middle-aged Catholic woman. She encounters a strange young man who may or may not be something infernal. A very unusual relationship develops.
Ms. Tweedy currently lives in San Diego with her husband and sons.
