With a spirit of gratitude, determination, and joy, Mary writes plays that challenge beliefs, shed light in the dark places, and inspire fresh perspectives, thoughtful reflection, and laughter. Her work has been produced across Tennessee, published in several collections, recognized by national competitions, and commissioned by arts organizations who are dedicated to promoting positive change in their communities through theater-based endeavors.
