Merriam Webster: a puzzle is a problem difficult to solve or a situation difficult to resolve.
Mary is a Minnesota girl and has always loved a good mystery, a brain teaser, or a challenge. As a former math teacher, she ties numbers and logic to the mayhem game. The Katie and Maverick cozy mysteries allow her to share those stories, as well as puzzles, riddles, and a few taste-tested recipes.
When she’s not writing or reading, she’s making wonderful memories with family, exchanging thoughtful ideas with friends, walking her dog whose only speed is faster, dabbling in needle crafts, and pretending to cook. You can also find her sneaking bites of chocolate and sipping wine, both of which sometimes occur WHILE writing. Mary is a member of Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, American Cryptogram Association, Dog Writers of America, and PEO.
