Pseudonym: Mary Alice Kruesi.

New York Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe found her true calling in environmental fiction when she moved to coastal South Carolina.

Already a successful author, she was captivated by the beauty—and fragility—of her new home. Her experiences living in the midst of a habitat that was quickly changing gave her a strong and important focus for her books.

Since then, she has explored the problems of endangered sea turtles (The Beach House), raptors (Skyward) and the indigenous grass and endangered ecosystem (Sweetgrass). In Swimming Lessons, her new novel and a sequel to The Beach House, Mary Alice returns to the southeastern coast to explore the rehabilitation of injured and sick sea turtles.

Monroe continues to write richly textured books that delve into the complexities of the human psyche and the parallels between the land and life. Mary Alice is an active conservationist. She is a dedicated member of the Isle of Palms/Sullivan’s Island Turtle Team, a volunteer at the South Carolina Center for Birds of Prey, and serves on the Board of the South Carolina Aquarium. A source of pride for Mary Alice is the fact that thousands of dollars have been raised to support environmental causes, specifically through her books.

Mary Alice Monroe’s ten novels are published worldwide and have won acclaim and awards. She has also published her first children’s book. Mary Alice is a frequent speaker at conferences and private events. She lives with her family on a barrier island off South Carolina.
