Mary's been making a living from words all her working life - as a teacher, freelance writer, facilitator, speaker and consultant. She's been a soloist most of that time having made the decision years ago to work around her children. Now the children are grown (and almost gone), she just likes the lifestyle.
The author of two small business marketing books Promote Your Business: How to write effective marketing material for your small business and Talk Up Your Business, Mary has a new book Write to Govern in the pipeline. She’s also developed three online training programs on grammar, business writing and promotional writing.
Mary writes a monthly e-newsletter, Factorial, about writing, grammar and marketing.
