Merriam Webster: a puzzle is a problem difficult to solve or a situation difficult to resolve.
Mary has always loved a good mystery, a brain teaser, or a challenge. As a former mathematics teacher, she ties numbers and logic to the mayhem game. The Katie Wilk mysteries allow her to share those stories, as well as puzzles, riddles, and a few taste-tested recipes.
When she’s not writing, she’s making wonderful memories with family, exchanging thoughtful ideas with friends, walking her dog whose only speed is faster, dabbling in needlecrafts, 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 Mysteries Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, American Cryptogram Association, and PEO.
Titanic Cocktail would be her debut novel.
