Mary has been a writer most of her life. She spent most of her career doing business and copy writing. Now, she has launched out as an author. Beginning with children’s books that help parents and children engage in conversation and learning, Mary’s heart is to write nonfiction eventually. Born in Los Angeles, California, she and her husband, Rob, were launched by their home church in Pasadena, HRock Church, by their pastor, Che Ahn, to pastor a church in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in 1999. They have since obtained dual citizenship in USA and Canada and love their adopted nation of Canada. Mary and Rob have three grown children and seven grandchildren, all who live in the United States. The couple have made their home in Toronto with Siamese cat, Miya, and Maltese dog, Zoe. Mary’s dream is to educate and encourage single mothers, marginalized women and children to dream big and move forward into the lives they were meant to live. Some of this she does through her flourishing Avon business. As a top seller in Avon and a team leader, Mary encourages women to rise up out of poverty and live their dreams.
