Mary Carter's most rewarding career has been as a theater specialist for youth. Crafting plays that make the past cool for actors and audiences alike has been her greatest joy. Mary has led over 500 history and art related programs for youth and their families. At the pinnacle of her career, Mary adapted and staged a full-scale outdoor production of 'A Christmas Carol' in a historic downtown setting. Mother Nature added her own special effects by producing wind and snow precisely on cue. This venture provided the basis for Mary's current novel, 'The Twelve Takes of Christmas.'
Mary lives on a 50 acre farm outside Boston. In her own Louisa May Alcott style garret, Mary pens gentle humor and magical fantasy stories. Below stairs, she's known to make a mean margarita.
