Pseudonym: Mary Ellen Taylor.

Mary Burton loves writing suspense, researching law enforcement procedures and forensics, baking, books, and tiny dachshunds. Not necessarily in that order. She also enjoys hunting down serial killers, which she does in her New York Times and USA Today bestselling novels of suspense and romance. She’s tracked them down in stories set in her hometown of Richmond, Old Town Alexandria, Austin and Nashville that have been praised by readers and reviewers. Her work has been compared to that of Steig Larson,* Lisa Gardner ** and Lisa Jackson. ***'

Research is a favorite part of Mary’s work day. She never tires of learning more about police work and evidence and doesn’t hesitate to take a hands-on approach, whether it means interviews with those working in the field, forensic seminars or lessons at the firing range.

A Richmond native, Mary has lived there for most of her life. She is a graduate of Virginia's Hollins University and worked in marketing before she began writing full time. Her first book was published in 2000 and now she’s the author of twenty-seven published novels and five novellas, including her contemporary women’s fiction written as Mary Ellen Taylor. Her latest books, I’ll Never Let You Go, Cover Your Eyes and Be Afraid are the first of four set in Nashville and feature the Morgans, Music City’s preeminent law enforcement family. Vulnerable completes the quartet in April 2016. She also writes contemporary women’s fiction as Mary Ellen Taylor. Her latest is the Old Town Alexandria set The View from Prince Street.

An avid baker and an accomplished cook, Mary’s known to escape to the kitchen when her writing hits a snag. Once there, she's working out dialogue, untangling plot lines and figuring out how to trap her killer before the oven even has a chance to preheat.
