More About Mary Sullivan

Mary has always had a creative hunger she loved to feed, starting with her work in the darkroom manipulating and producing photographs. When computers changed the landscape of the commercial darkroom, she turned to photography, shooting folk CD covers and knitting books, as well as to gardening, to naming her delightful Australian Shepherd after her musical goddess Emmylou Harris, and to crafting her daughter’s crazy ideas for Halloween costumes—a door, a woman sitting in an armchair, and the huge Gimme Five hand the year she came home from school and complained about the boys slapping her back all day!

A few years ago, she picked up LaVyrle Spencer’s Morning Glory and became hooked on romance. Mary discovered Harlequin Superromance and knew she wanted to write these heartfelt stories of love, family, perseverance and happy endings, about very human heroes and heroines graced with backbone, strength of character and hope. She loves that moment when, even though it looks like these characters will never be able to make their love work, they then, against impossible odds, do.

She has won writing awards from Romantic Times magazine and RomCon, as well as the Bookseller's Best Award for Best Long Contemporary. She has been nominated in other contests, including Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart contest. Who knew daydreaming could feel so rewarding?
