When I read those books, I really got lost in the story, and now, when I’m writing my own stories, it’s still the very best place to me. Of course, in those days if I didn’t like the author’s ending, I re-worked it in my head until I did. Oh, how I wish I had recognized those writer tendencies pointing me toward my destiny. I didn’t, not for years….until one day…late in summer, I opened a moving box and discovered an old computer disk filled with 100 pages (single spaced) of a historical romance I’d started years before. From the very moment I popped that old disk into that ancient computer, I knew I had found my passion and I have never looked back.
About the Author:
Mary Campisi should have known she’d become a writer when at age thirteen she began changing the endings to all the books she read. It took several years and a number of jobs, including registered nurse, receptionist in a swanky hair salon, accounts payable clerk, and practice manager in an OB/GYN office, for her to rediscover writing. Enter a mouse-less computer, a floppy disk, and a dream large enough to fill a zip drive. The rest of the story lives on in every book she writes.
When she’s not working on her craft or following the lives of five young adult children, Mary’s digging in the dirt with her flowers and herbs, cooking, reading, walking her rescue lab mix, Cooper, or on the prefect day, riding off into the sunset with her very own “hero” husband, on his Electra Glide Classic aka Harley.
Mary has been published with Kensington, Carina Press, The Wild Rose Press, and Jocelyn Hollow Romance.
