Award-winning novelist and Golden Heart® winner Mary Strand practiced law for sixteen years before setting aside her pointy-toed shoes (well, most of them) and escaping the land of mergers and acquisitions to write novels. Her women’s fiction books are more serious, her young adult books more goofy, so if you put them together (and throw in some sports) they make up … Mary.
Mary is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin—Eau Claire and Georgetown University Law Center, where she was executive editor of law review. Mary has published articles in Bench & Bar of Minnesota and other legal publications, Romance Writers Report, and the Midwest Muse. She is a member of several writers’ organizations and has served on six nonprofit boards, including the Romance Writers of America® Board of Directors, but she’d rather talk about writing. Or basketball. Or classic rock. Or, actually, any number of things.
Mary lives on a lake in Minneapolis with her husband, two cute kidlets, and a stuffed monkey named Philip. When not writing, Mary loves traveling and playing sports with reckless abandon, and her injuries on the basketball court are the stuff of Facebook legend. If she has any vices—and she vigorously denies it—they might include (in no particular order) rock bands, dancing, triple-berry scones, Chipotle burritos, Cosmopolitans, her adorable little convertible, and Hugh Jackman. Oh, and she’s learning to play guitar. Rather badly.
